I have an Oday 30 as well, though it is the swing keel(actually a board as there is no ballast to the board). I would be quite amased if you had a bolt on keel as I have been tld and have read that all oday 30 and 31(essentially the same boat) have encapsulated ballast keels. Check very closely before doing any destructive examination. If it is a bolt on keel or has a joint, could you post pics please?

Welcome to the forum wescarroll! It's been quite sometime since I started this thread. But to recap: We just sanded the bottom around the keel and filled in the low spots sanded, filled and did the rudder with VC17. It's still a mystery to me how Oday attached such weight without some kind of mechanical fastners. But I'm not going to tear up the boat to find out!
fair winds!

Denise,
This is correct, the Keel is encapsulated, I had an O'day 28' and 30'. I struck a obstruction last year with the 30. Took a monster chunk off thr bottom, and partied all the faring and gelcoat around the trunk of the keel. The boat started taking on watr through the base of the keel and filling up the bildge every 20 minutes. The pumps were able to keep up and she was hauled that night at the shipyard.
After the surveryor was finished looking at her they replaced the missing lead, at the base of the keel, and glased everything, next the work began at the trunk. They ground everything out where the crack was and refilled and applied some gelcoat, sanded, painted and bac in the water she went.
So to answer your question, JUST A LITTLE FILLER.
She was a great sailing boat won alot of races with her, I sold her last season and bought a C36

Good Luck

When they made the hull they made it with a hollow and filled the hollow with lead from the inside.
