Sailormon6,
Clipper Marine MK23, She is a twin keel boat, draws about 24 in of water. The bilge (What there is of it) is only about four to six inches deep. The nuts holding the keel bolts are almost rusted off. This boat was a recent "Gift". I have been fixer-up'n it for the past two months. Actually, the boat is in really good shape, after a good cleaning. However, I am concerned about the seaworthness of the vessel, what with the bolts in the bad condition they are. I'm just looking for comments from fo;ks that have tackled this type of problem. Thanks for your reply,
hooyasailor
