Re: Venture 17 restoration
Wow. I have NO idea what that is. To be sure -- that is the pivot point for the entire keel? And to remove it you'd have to go inside the cabin and remove the rather large bolt out of that fiberglass protrusion just aft of the mast support? That would allow the keel to fall out of the bottom of the boat (putting a rather large dent in the driveway) , exposing this thing, visible from directly under the boat?
Am I correct?
