Re: '81 Spirit 23 in Charlotte, NC

I welded it myself. There really is very little load on this bracket, it's supported above & aft (with the cable fitting) & even if your welds stink you can always grind & redo, hell ho one's going to see it! When you route the cable through & finally swage an eye on it make sure you use 2 swage fittings I only did one initially & it slipped out this year (after 2 years in service) so I had to take the keel out again just to re swage!
