I logged out and in, now it''s showing me.
There''s a guy in Ca who has a business replacing keel bolts. I emailed him recently about doing a columbia 34 for me. His estimate was $1500.

There''s much talk on Columbia web sites about replacing keel bolts. Your boat is similar. Google Columbia keel bolts.

hi, i just bought a 27'' coronado and might have to replace the keelbolts. the tops of the bolts are easy to get at under the cabin floor. will i be able to simply back the old bolts out with a wrench and thread the new ones in?thanks,frank
