Amazing! That is a picture of the keel, and a couple of the four corroded bolts, from MY boat! I suspect that the pic was taken by me... It is polite to give credit, as I have done for Mars Keel in my post above.

Here is another pic showing the keel as it went out to have the bolt replacement done. It is difficult to see, but the forward most bolt snapped off completely when the yard tried to loosen the nut.
