I am looking at a Watkins 36 however its a ways to go to see it I have found conflicting info on the Watkins website does the 1981 w36c have keel bolts or is it encapsulated ?
I already read all that I could,d find the problem is the early 36 center cockpit ones had a bolt on keel ballast due to the small shop that they were building them in they would,dnt fit out the door with the meal on keel them they switched in the early mid 80"s to all internal ballast can't find a difinative as to exactly what year this happened.newhaul;
Find specs at Watkins* Owners Home Page . A cornucopia of information, indeed !
like my 27, the keels were formed as part of the hull then filled with ballast. For more detailed questions, I invite you to follow. the link to the useres group at the above address.sorry, I can't C&P from here
