Re: Keel J bolt replacement in lead keel
I. Broomfield & Sons
in RI does it. Drop it on a pallet and ship it to I. Broomfield...
in Canada does it.
Both of these companies to stellar work..
This is why keels need to be dropped and re-bed every so often ESPECIALLY when keel smiles appear or "weeping" of the keel joint appears when hauled...
Just who I wanted to hear from!
Unfortunately, It wasn't where the bolts went through the keel stub, it was under the nuts. I loosened the nuts each year to torque the bolts, but never pulled them all the way off. The nuts torqued down tight each time, but the threads where they tighten down are gone on a few and badly pitted on a few others.
