Re: Walk Away From This Keel?
That's not just a keel bolt (or even a few).
Either it broke several and stretched all the rest or the aft end of the keel punched up into the hull/keel sump.
That would be some major damage there.
If it was insured, I'd guess they would have totaled the boat!
Though to be fair, given the age, possibly it did break already seriously flawed bolts, but replacing one would be insufficient. If they dropped the keel, inspected all the bolts and found many were indeed failed/failing, & replaced them, I might think about it, but I'd still walk away!
