Re: New member/sailboat owner..

I may be mistaken, but IIRC the Pearson keelbolts are truly bolts passing through a keel-top flange.. if so, esp now that she's already on the hard it may not be a major job to dig out the fairing and replace those two unsightly bolts. It would get rid of any nagging worry on your first season, and may not involve dropping the keel.

btw - welcome to the forum.. the 'learn to sail for free' at a race night is a path I've long recommended to new wanna-be sailors.. works every time!
