I have finally come to the same conclusion. The keel stub on these boats was built very well. I have been corresponding with Bob Perry and he thinks so, too. I have not noticed the flex you describe under sail but will do as you suggest. I am finally relieved to understand that the keel stub and bolts are secure.

What was the source of the leak you discovered at the aft end of your keel/floors?

Thanks for sharing.
