Stone Horse keel delamination

Anyone have experience with Edey & Duff''s Stone Horse, a Sam Crocker design? I''m planning to buy one and have learned that the boat''s keel fell off when it was hauled a few years ago because of delamination. The surveyor I''m working with says he knew of another Stone Horse that also lost its keel. Supposedly the keel was restored with new fiberglassing, but it is worrisome. Apparently the problem is because the mold was in halves, with the seam along the keel, which holds about 2000 pounds of lead and cement.

Appreciate any comments from owners, others on these boats.

Stone Horse keel delamination

I own a SH hull #1. Hull#1 was one of two SH''s built with outside ballast so I don''t have your problem,however I would suggest calling Edey & Duff and speaking with Dave, Joe,or Eddie about the boats condition.I''ve been dealing with them for over 4 years and they are always more than happy to assist.If you do buy the boat let Edey & Duff know, they keep records on all their boats.My experience as a SH sailor is the boat I have with a club foot jib out sails the others with the wishbone. Any other questions you might have regarding the SH let me know and I''ll try to answre them. B. McB.
