Re: Keel J bolt replacement in lead keel
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.
I've seen that too.. Good to know your hull/keel joint was intact though...
