Re: keel bolt torque

Sometimes the nuts are stuck by the adhesive below them. Not a job for a hand ratchet. Get the specs and a large torque wrench. Use a long pipe as extension. You’ll need a helper to hold steady. If you need a torque multiplier, you’ll need two helpers.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
