Re: Replacing lead Keel bolts

Actually, that 5 times safety factor works for the 1/2 hanger bolts. 1400 x 5 = 7000 per bolt, which is about what i calculated was required for a 1x safety factor. So, having a 13700 lb holding capacity gives me an over all safety factor of 2x. I get a warm fuzzy with that margin.
