Re: Keel Bolts
I think this is little more than a false sense of security. Is there any engineering that suggests an epoxy filled hole with a bolt in it will provide any additional strength? Will the epoxy take the twisting load, along with the vertical?
I'm just cautioning against drilling additional holes in one's boat without a really good reason and firm engineering.
What conditions do you sail your boat in that give you concern?
