1965 Islander 32 Keel bolts

I can only find one keelbolt in my bilge....at least i think its a keelbolt. Has anyone replaced the keel bolts..or added new ones,if so, whats the procedure, I am pretty handy if it can be done. I am not sure if my keel is encased in fiberglass or not....anyone help...thanks

I had an Islander 29 which is the cousin to the 32. If like mine, these had encapsalated keels so there were not any bolts to go bad. They have a lot of glass down in that area. We had some hard grounding and our's never flexed, cracked. Have the newer Islander 32 now...so I like the boats

I doubt they much care, as the post you're responding to is eight years old. Please check dates before responding to ancient dead threads.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
