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.
