Crack at joint?

If it is the crack that develops between the f/g keel stub and an external keel, what worked for me was:

1. Clean up any loose material and let it dry comletely.
2. Fill gap with 5200 and let dry
3. Put a 3" piece of f/g tape over the the gap with epoxy resin (I used West epoxy and tape)
4. Fair and paint.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
