Re: Beneteau Keel bolts

Those French guys are dang good engineers. Lots of math, finite element analysis, safety factors.

But that's not how you attach a high-aspect, bulbed keel. This is how you attach a keel.

(the keel bolts to the bottom. the sides bolt to the longitudinal stringers. posted earlier today, from Francis Lee)
