Lion35 is on a distinguished road
It seems very early to be replacing keel bolts and in my opinion means something went wrong (as in CEOL's case.) My keel bolts are 48 years old and are ready for replacement, I have a friend who replaced the keel bolts on his 1928 Alden and it was probably over due. A 15 year old boat shouldn't need this kind of work unless it was built wrong, had a glavanic problem, or was grounded. You may want to talk to other owners/ owner groups to see if this is a known problem with these boats.
