Santana 30' Keel Bolts
I'm calling out to "columbusc" the former Service Dept. guy from Santana Yachts, or anyone with knowledge pertaining to Santana 30' keels.
My friend Emily bought a Santana 30' and the keel bolts and nuts are badly corroded and need to be replaced. I work in a yard and am familiar with the procedure involved with this type of job. Are the threaded studs cast into the lead or are they threaded into the keel? I'm trying to help her decide what to do and knowing this will help since it would be much more expensive to fix if they are cast in place.
