C&C "smile", crack at the stub/keel joint... problem?

I had the same on my C&C 24 and used spot putty after tightening the bolts and some bottom paint and was good to go. Bolts looked good! More cosmetic unless corroded or damaged!

I have a smile on my Viking 33. The caulk joint behind it looks fine and it faired over. so the fairing is coming off.

I intend on torquing the bolts and possibly re-fairing

I've mentioned this before, but it bears repeating, given the circumstances.

IIRC, those Viking 33's had their keels epoxied on, not just sealed with flexible gunk of some sort. There was a story (Pacific Yachting??) back in the day about one that went on the rocks in Porlier Pass. Its keel got bent as a result and it had to be SAWN off.

You are very likely just suffering from some minor flexure, just enough to crack the filler in the seam.

It's worth checking out anyway.

Thats exactly how it looks. The expoxy got flexed and let go and under it I can see what looks like caulk of sorts.

When you say "checked out" what are you suggesting I do?

I peeled away some more of the epoxy since the above photo. I'll take some more next time I'm down there.

By what I saw on my keel when I dropped it and what Ed H and Maine Sail show in their great pictures the corrosion loss is inside the nuts above the bilge floor. The thickness of the bilge floor being indicated by the white 5200 on the threads. What this means of course is that the bolts can be inspected by removing the nuts while on the hard. Am I missing something here?

I meant checking to confirm that the keels were actually epoxied on (bedded with epoxy) rather than being bedded with 5200 or some such. I was relating a 35 or 40 year old memory of something I read - far from a guarantee that your keel IS mounted that way.

Is there an owners group for Ontario yachts for example?
