I'll get you a few pictures of mine and then it'll become clear how the keel stopper works. It doesn't stop the keel in purpose...it stops the water from coming up in the keel well.

Great pictures to both of you. I bought my cal 21 a year ago and still learning. I like the hatch in the cockpit. Looks like it allows you access to some of the area you can't get to without crawling. Looks like bonito has a little work ahead of him. If I can help in anyway let me know. I haven't had my cal out this year yet because I'm trying to catch up on all the maintenance to the boat. My cal was sitting for the last 8 years.
