I thought it was not good to cover stainless steel. (I think mine are stainless, are yours?) Something about their needing oxygen.

replaced keel bolts

The owner replaced the keelbolts and epoxy coating!

A few other minor items were taken care of and we are now getting ready for seatrial!!

svHyLyte Occasionally, if water has been allowed to stand in the bilge, one will find rust and corrosion on the heads of keel bolts. This is not unusual and not limited to Beneteau yachts by any means. Fortunately, the keel bolts in a Beneteau are easily reached and fairly easy to replace, one at a time, even with the yacht in the water. One simply needs the right sized socket, extension, and a good torque wrench. Contact Ward Richardson at Beneteau (843-629-5300) for the right bolts, which are not that costly, and the torque specifications. After replacing the bolts, there is merit to covering them and the washers with a layer of epoxy to seal out any water.

FWIW...

sailingfool You really should not expect to receive better advice from folks on this website, who haven't seen the boat, than that provided by a knoiwledgeable surveyor, who has seen the boat. At the very least publish his findings and perhaps others can offer their own opinions of them, even if we'll be less informed.

Cruisingdad What does your surveyor think? That would send up all kinds of red flags for me.

Has anybody had experience with corroded keel steel bolts?

I am in middle of survey and this issue has come up.
