Received the following estimate for repairing the keel on my 2006 Beneteau 423 after anticipating new anti fouling. Anyone confirm if this is appropriate? Thx

If they are really going to grind the entire keel down to bare metal, apply two coats of thickened epoxy sealer, fair the keel, and then apply three coats of barrier coat, that is a real bargain.

If they are only spot grinding and spot repairing, you can expect to spend the same amount or more next time, and then its not a particularly cheap price.

In addition, looking at the photo of the top leading edge of the keel, it looks like you may need keel bolts., You should probably remove a few and check their condition.
