Thank you soo much!!!
I had a board over the keel hole in the cockpit, with the winch bolted on top of it. I took it off and I am thinking of running it from the inside, via some rollers, still in my mind and later replacing it with a electric winch to make it even easier and able to do for my wife too. Since now it takes too long to raise or lower it. The board was toast and fell apart soon, so I made I temporary new one, but didn't like it since water got in and the stumbling part having the winch there in the way. I still have to drop and inspect the keel and bearings. So I am still far from done, I am looking for any insight and a do appreciate all you have given especially with the photos, thanks.
Here's a link what she looks now, sort of naked:
