Re: Do all Beneteaus have iron keels?

I think of all the worries about a sailboat this one should be down on the list. As long as it has been maintained it should not be a huge issue. It is a big deal once, but once you get it done right you should be OK. I think there was a big post of Sail Chick's adventure with her keel. I think she has had some issues, with reoccurring rust. But I have not seen her post much lately so I am not sure if she has had anymore.
