Re: Breasting my fin keel? Help please.


Thanks for the encouragement. I am now comfortable with the process. This forum has given me the feedback I needed. I just had a Brownell truck miss my keel, start to haul, I slipped between the supports, scraped faring off the keel! Yikes! I should be able to expect the guy who I am paying to haul my boat to be capable of doing it without damaging anything. I will supervise the process myself next time. If there is a next time for that guy. It is disturbing how careless many service providers are. I used to run a 60 ton TravelLift in Eastport, ME. I even have an operators certificate from TravelLIft. It isn't rocket science! I prefer to take care of things myself, too. No one does it better.... Ha!
