thanks for the info . I tightened them today and they were loose especially the front bolt. i have bigger problems then that as the front bolt is off center in the bilge and the keel is also off center at the front. I don't think there is a quick fix for this and I might sail it as is as the only alternative is pull of the keel and replace the front bolt. Any other ideas? thanks ahab211 Also was the weight on the keel using jacks the marina provided adding to the loose bolt problem?
