Re: keel bolt torque

If it's only a hairline crack probably not a problem. Normal for the unyielding metal of the keel to work against the more flexible fiberglass. It's especially evident if someone tried to glass over the join or used a not flexible sealing compound. Fill with Lifecaulk or 4200, smooth out and paint over.
