Re: Replacing lead Keel bolts

So, you say your boat won't point well? My Hunter 27 pointing ability was very poor, then the keel nearly fell off, came down about 2" when they lifted her to go in the water the next season! I fixed it, and the difference in pointing ability was astonishing. Apparently you DO need a keel to sail upwind!
