Re: Replacing lead Keel bolts
Eherlihy, I'm wondering if the root cause of the damage to those bolts is more stretching than corrosion? Anybody?
It's a pretty easy check, just try and thread a nut down on the existing threads. But I don't see anything that looks like elongation. The pictures are pretty typical of general corrosion eating away at the bolts.
