As usual, life has gotten in the way and I have yet to pull the boat out. I have been having issues with getting the boat transported to a yard that will allow me to work on it. Georgia is NOT a boat friendly place to be. All in all, it seems I will have to get the boat hauled at one yard, trucked 1/2 mile to another so that I dont have to pay $35 a day storage and $3000 for a bottom job. I will still document the keel and mast step repairs when I do. As ugly as my keel bolts are, we dove under the boat last week and inspected the keel to hull joint. After 1 year there is no crack. Whatever condition the bolts are in, they are still holding. The lag bolts may now be a solution. More to follow...
