Re: Another Venture 17 keel repair question Another Venture 17 keel repair thread

I had seen that video searching YouTube and noticed the trailing edge was formed out of filler. There's a few other sites with photos that show wood on the leading and trailing edges wrapped in fiberglass. We'll find out what's in there once I get cracking on the rebuild. I'm currently refinishing the rudder. When I start on the keel, I'll be sure to take photos and post how it's put together for anyone that runs into the same problem down the road. I currently have West 105/205 but probably should get some 206 so that I have a bit of additional work time. If I do need some body filler, I assume vinyl ester is the 'stuff' for underwater use? Of course, over coated in epoxy and gel coat.
