Re: Breasting my fin keel? Help please.


Thanks for these. The PNW is a lot like downeast when it comes to the tide ranges. Grids are familiar here, too. Our Perry, ME farm enjoys an 18' , twice daily, average range on Passamaquoddy Bay. Many long established yards have them. TravelLifts took a bite out of the practice. Your 4th photo looks a lot like my location without the grid. I think the procedure is very doable for me here. The concern I have about balancing on a 2' fin that is rounded on its bottom edge looks manageable. Rather than a grid or even a block I think my initial effort will simply use a carefully prepared location in the firm gravel.

Thank you for going to the effort to share these.
