I'm not certain but I would suspect the keel on a Coronado would be mounted like the keel on My Columbia 43 which was similar but utilized studs threaded into the flange rather than jumbo screws through the flange.

That's the way it was done on the Columbia 26 which I believe was the same hull, with a different "lid" as the Coronado 27....
Maybe. However, that's what the keel on my Victory 21 was like. Granted, the V21 is a much smaller boat. But, it was built by Wesco, which became Coronado (or did Wesco build Coronados and Victories? ... whatever). I suspect that all the keels on their smaller boats were similar. On the other hand, if the Columbia 26 had bolts threaded into the keel, who knows?

Nope. Everything is too neat. Not broken hacksaw blades littering the area. No empty beer cans. No half used-up first aid kit. The whole thing looks obviously staged to me.

Hey. Those aren't stainless steel bolts, are they? I was told that SS on an iron keel was a no-no.

Re: what do you keel bolts look like?

hank mckune built victories, thunderbirds, helped with coronado, as they came from hank's molds, he also make olympian, yorktown, champion, all american, and consulted with others--charlie morgan, frank butler--in their origins in boat building history. all hank's keels were same in shape, and they were unique in their attachment techniques. coronado 30 and 34 came from olympian molds and much of hank's knowledge went into catalina , coronado, morgan and some few others. hank was an olympic gold medalist, and was the host of the first ever comedy talk show on television. when he left tv, he began building dinghies, a she called them.
i owned an olympian 34 and an all american 30, and i commissioned from hank a 42 ft yorktown...looong ago. he was a very interesting soul.

wesco may have bought the molds from hank, but then, as hank is no longer available fro comment, is an unknown...hank was sneaky .


maine--your bilge is gorgeous!!!

Maine_Sail, that bilge is disgusting. Albert Einstein famously said, "A clean desk is a sign of a sick mind." If he had seen that bilge he would have hauled you to the looney bin himself.
eherlihy and zeehag like this.

Yep, they are electropolished S/S, coated with anti-seize before installation.

The pic of the rotten stuff I posted earlier shows what happens to regular steel bolts. I did a lot of research for that very reason - the conventional wisdom is no S/S in an iron keel. I discovered that the big Euro builders all use S/S in iron keels. Due to that and the fact they can be easily pulled and examined, I decided to go that way.

Also, I've never heard of an iron keel with S/S bolts falling off due to crevice corrosion, galvanics or anything else to do with the metals, just a lot of talk about how "dangerous" it was, none of it by the way from anyone who actually OWNED an iron keel.

However I HAVE heard of iron keels mounted with steel bolts falling off - one of them was another Columbia 43 in Sausalito.

Yowza Maine - that's the best I've seen on a GOB.

And that's the original factory gel coat too. Never painted or re-touched just kept clean, dry and maintained.
