anodes on a lead keel fixed with stainless 316 bolts
I have recently started work on my 22ft plywood bildge keeler, one of the keels was fully detached from hull and hanging on by the last three (of 5) bolts. so I am rebuilding the timber section of the keel and fastening with stainless 316 bolts, also i will encase the keel in fibreglass.. two things Im not too sure of, do I need anodes? If so advice on installation? and any idea's on how to fix the stainless bolts to the lead keel? wire brush the inside of bolt holes - melt lead and pour into the groove? as I take it oxidisation/corrosion can occur if there is a crevice between bolts and lead?
