Re: Spirit 23 modifications
Here is the mod I've done to the swing keel. Added a bit of weight and some SS to the leading edge & bottom. I didn't take a finished picture, but you get the idea. All the empty space between the SS & keel bottom was filled with a lead shot epoxy slurry, then all glassed over. It sounds like a bomb going off when it grounds but I haven't even noticed any paint scrapes on it in 2 seasons of sailing.
