Re: Beneteau Keel bolts

The backing plates look bent up on the port side, giving the appearance of failure due to leverage from the side. Are there any pics of the keel that show where it was impacted? I wonder if it drove up onto a ledge, with the boat falling off to one side. Jury is out on whether this is a manufacturing issue or just a freak failure scenario. It will be very interesting to find out.

p.s. those keel bolts look better than mine (which are being replaced this Fall.
