Well - my posts are up to 10 - but I still can't attach pix - maybe this post (making it 11) might do the trick??

You need to have the picture on a web server somewhere, like imageshack or flickr. The first one is free and easy to use.

I cannot imagine a builder using wood for a spacer. I have seen cast iron used on Tartans about 10 years ago as an option for more performance. I have also seen SS fuel tanks used as part of the design with keel bolts going through them. Why would anyone use wood except on a wood boat? Is it a wood boat?

Many builders have used wood where it shouldn't be - see Catalina. It has no place in a keel structure on a fiberglass boat as it becomes sacrificial over time to the owner's detriment.

To post pics use whichever photo program you have and downsize to 640 x 480 small file and you should not have a problem.

Bigwalt, photo bucket is real easy to use. I know this because I'm using it!

When you think about it, what else would work better then wood between a keel stub and keel? Other then eventual rot wood seems the have all the right properties. (just knows that statement will get lots of input)

I'll post the picture here so we can talk about it. Personally I have never seen anything like it.

As far as what to do I would probably just go over it with some penetrating epoxy, then several more coats of epoxy. Caulk the joints with 4200 and paint it. It looks like it might be mahogany. Seems very odd to me but looks solid. This is not visible in your out of the water picture.

To post pictures just right click on the image on line you want to show and copy the url address. Then click the box above the the posting box that shows "insert image". Past the url in the pop up box and hit enter.
