Re: Keel Grounding repair - DIY or pay for a profesional?
Look inside the boat above the area where the keel shows the separation. If there is no damage inside or signs of water intrusion it is likely that it's simply some fairing material got cracked when the hull flexed from the impact.
It's generally the front of the keel that shows separation on Cats - it's called the "Catalina Smile".
Post some pics when you get it hauled.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
