I'm not certain but I would suspect the keel on a Coronado would be mounted like the keel on My Columbia 43 which was similar but utilized studs threaded into the flange rather than jumbo screws through the flange.

That's the way it was done on the Columbia 26 which I believe was the same hull, with a different "lid" as the Coronado 27....
Maybe. However, that's what the keel on my Victory 21 was like. Granted, the V21 is a much smaller boat. But, it was built by Wesco, which became Coronado (or did Wesco build Coronados and Victories? ... whatever). I suspect that all the keels on their smaller boats were similar. On the other hand, if the Columbia 26 had bolts threaded into the keel, who knows?

Nope. Everything is too neat. Not broken hacksaw blades littering the area. No empty beer cans. No half used-up first aid kit. The whole thing looks obviously staged to me.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
