Re: Cortez 16

Well I finally got a few pictures to upload and they are in my gallery. I will try to post but if not you can find them in my profile. Anyway the picture is of the keel at the forward end of the trunk. The crack is on both sides suggesting to me the swing keel dropped violently or ran aground traveling backwards. The white area is where the previous owner (PO) could not paint due to the roller on the trailer. It looks as though the PO tried a quick patch with epoxy or something like that. Anyway the keel goes up and down with the winch but it is sticky. At some point I will remove everything and cut out the cracks and re glass the area correctly. I will also replace all the hardware and clean up the keel to make it function normally.
