Talking Keel, rudder, prop horror stories?

I don't have any.. the most drama I can offer is the old "strong seal" was worn on one side nearly a 1/8" and leaked badly. (PO left a mount loose) Replaced it this winter with new pss seal, new cutless bearing and hardware.

Surely some of you old salts have some real eye opening tales to tell?

why this thread? well, I have a "encapsulated keel" and cannot for life of me understand how that mass can stay attached with out bolts. a couple of years ago someone made mention of his breaking loose, but the thread died, never heard about the repairs. (it may have been on another forum) I know some bolt on keels smile allot. But what about those odays, pearsons, ericcisons? Are keel problems only related to water intrusion?
and,, I guess I'm getting bored reading the forums lately?
