I'm looking at a '81 pearson 32 and was wondering if anyone had an idea of what this is in the picture. It is on imbedded in the keel. I have seen other pearson's of the same age with the same plate. It measures appprox 12" x 12".
Could it be a grounding plate. All the thru hulls and chain plate have ground wires on them and they seem to lead to the keel bolts.

Lets get out the thinking Caps.

You need to use the IMG code or right-click the photo, copy the image location and then paste it into the box and delete everything after the ".jpg" when clicking the photo link icon




BTW, no idea... have you tried peeling that away. The rust streaks are likely a bad sign. Is it an iron keel??

I don't believe it is an iron keel. I have seen the same plate on another Pearson, it was in better condition but same exact size and location. I have downloaded a owners manual and there is no mention of this or that they used an iron keel.

I guess we will see what the surveyor says.

(Guess #1) Access port from / for replacing the Keel Bolts.
(Guess #2) Torpedo tube outer door
