Re: Maintenance on a swing keel
I also have a Vision 660, but my problem is different. The keel goes up and down quite freely. But the strap-pulleys-line-camcleat mechanism wont lift the keel. It seems to turn the appropriate amount with line going in and out but no mater how hard I pull, I cannot raise the keel. When I put it in the water this spring I had the keel cleated in the up position on the trailer. Once off the trailer and in the water I uncleated and with two hands I could barely slow the keel swinging down into place. The strap around the small pulley going down seems to move correctly and the line around the large pulley seems to move correctly, but I am afraid to pull any harder lest I break something. Since you have had your keel out maybe you could give me some clues as to what is jammed down there?
