Re: Replacing lead Keel bolts
Eherlihy, I'm wondering if the root cause of the damage to those bolts is more stretching than corrosion? Anybody?
I can't speak to that, as I did not build the boat, and she was not mine when those pictures were taken.
I believe that what you are looking at is simple crevice corrosion. Those lines in the metal are simply the way that the corrosion traveled through the steel.
