You should also ncrease the size of the pivot bolt. I went from 1/2" to 5/8" Grade 8, and it still bent a little. Your keel will work better if it has some kind of foil shape. Best, BG

Slightly Gone

Hi All: I'm still here... I don't post that much unless there's a specific question I can help with, 'cause I sold my V22 five years ago (for a Montgomery 17). But you're right, there has been a...

The only other option is to build your own, as in Tom Stockwell's design. I did it & it worked OK for me, but Tom says he broke one of his rudders and should be built stronger.
