I think the bit most use is an augar bit and drilling straight shouldn't be much of an issue if you go slow. Sorry, but not getting what you mean by "it is still mounted in the boat". If you are talking about the keel mounted in the boat I'm not sure what that would have to do with drilling holes straight.
