Re: Keel Damage Repair 1986 H40 Legend

Without photos it makes no sense to propose a fix. Of course small missing bits can be replaced/filled in with epoxy fairing as Jeff noted. I suppose the question might come down to how much of the missing feel can be replaced with lighter fairing material with a negligible impact on performance. I suggest you do some math and compare the weights of the mass as iron and fairing. Consider that the dynamics of the boat are also based on how much superimposed dead load is on board.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
