Re: Do all Beneteaus have iron keels?
Thanks that's the perspective I was looking for! My concern was adding additional expense to every bottom job for an iron keel.
I can tell your mind is made up and that's fine. However, the iron keel maintenance I described is pretty inconsequential to the cost of a bottom painting and I think you realize, it isn't necessary every time.
When you get crevice corrosion on the bolts coming from your lead keel, let us know what that maintenance sets you back.
A grinding wheel you could run yourself in 20 minutes and a couple slaps of epoxy is going to seem like a pretty good deal.
