While pounding in nasty summer chop on S.F. Bay Frolic would take on water. I turned around, and went down wind, and no water. Turned around again to beat, and more water. Fortunately the bilge pump could keep up. Turned downwind, and sailed home.
Pulled Frolic out of the water, and the front keel bolt had broken. I can only assume pounding to windward would open it up, but smooth sailing downwind it would stay closed? Just some food for thought........i2f
