Re: Beneteau Keel bolts
"I would have thought the bolts would pull before the structure itself would fail."
And in fact, just aft of center, it appears that one of the keel "stud bolts" that B inserts into the top of their cast iron keels, is still attached to the hull on the starboard (down) side of the keel mounting area.
Is the saildrive normal on that model? Or does it reflect a boat in the EU market?
