Re: swing keel problem

Attached is a picture of my keel measurements before my repairs, then during the repairs a steel bottom was installed. The cable fitting came off last weekend & I had to go thru the effort of keel removal again! What a PITA ! Where the keel strikes the forward part of the keel slot on the hull I mounted a 3/8 thick piece of nylon as the wood I used last time got gouged. The cable was otherwise in perfect shape.
