Re: Installing Additional Keel Bolts

if you are trying prevent or eliminate the Catalina smile then use the kit from Catalina direct. the kit does work well and is a tested method but must be done out of the water so the boats weight is pushing the smile closed before you drive in the lag bolts. the lags will not close the smile with the weight of the keel hanging
