Re: New owner of a Parker Dawson 26 Ketch

Few pictures of my keel removed from the boat.
1. The lift cable attachment is completely encapsulated with rust. There is no way I could remove it underwater in order to replace it. The pin was soaked for 2 days in Liquid Wrench before I could hammer it out.
2. The lift cable snapped in two during the lift!
3. GoHoist Tall Boy worked great. However, it is best done with 3 guys helping.
