Just bought a Rodgers 24 looking for keel info, etc.

Hello all, I am new to sailboats. Luckily someone will be teaching me to sail. This Rodgers is an 1982 needs work. I don't even see where I would lower the keel. Any help with that would be appreciated. Any place for info on this model would be great. Looks like it had about a foot of water in it. Now I am very concerned to find if that is still the case, before I take it out. Any tricks to see for leaks on the hard? Thanks in advance. Rick

Designed by OH Rodgers in Tampa area. He is still around but I don't have a contact number. His profile is on Linkedin. Have sailed on his Kiwi 35 and against the Rodgers 26 but not the 24. Suggest you pose the question on Sailing Anarchy since this was designed as a raceboat.

If there was a foot of water in the hull, at least you know it doesn't leak from that line down.

Thank You, I didn't look at it that way. I will get the garden hose out and start spraying with a spotter inside the boat.
