C&C 35 smile

My hope was I had avoid this problem, but as soon as the fresh bottom paint was on last week i returned on Sunday to see a weep, about 3 inches in length on the port side of the leading edge of the keel, about 20 something inches down. I noticed leaving the yard Sunday and can't get back before they launch it on Saturday.

How concerned should i be by this? Can I assume it is still very small based on the length of crack in the paint, or do I have to get in there to know for sure? The boats in lake Michigan, so it will be hauled again in 5 months. How much worse will it get in that time?

Re: C&C 35 smile

What model 35? What was status when it came OUT of water? My opinion would be, not a concern.

Re: C&C 35 smile

The smile is common. The keelbolts may need to be tightened. Specs can be found at cncphotoalbum.com. When you have time the joint should be cleaned and glassed over.

Re: C&C 35 smile

I think they were intended to be caulked and sealed, not glassed over. Glass won't have any flex and keels often will move around ever so slightly, requiring some flex on that joint. C&C being famous for a slight motion there.
