Re: bilge of a grampian 26
Water in the bilge is normal for a boat with a stuffing box . When they put it on the hard it would have been nice to dry the bilge . IMO you do not need to drop the keel . I am fairly certain the crack you are referring to is basically cosmetic , but you will want to fix the crack with filler . The keel bolts look good . Grampian made a good boat . Some people have them here and they seem to have a popular following .
