Thanks for reply - never thought about keel torqueing or twisting as you described. The wooden spacer block is pretty substantial - and the lead portion of the keel weighs 8000#. It is bolted thru the wooden spacer block with seven 1" diameter stainless steel rods.

I'm fairly new at this forum stuff - but I tried to attach a picture of the keel so you can see what it looks like.
