New Keel Bolts

As anybody with a classic wooden yacht knows, the important thing is to check the bolts. So again this job was outsourced to Jerry who had a challenging time dropping the keel as she was not in a boatyard. The bolts were dropped and released by cutting sections on the bolts as they feel. The new bolts came in from the top of the threading into pre-threaded lugs. The keel was bedded in tar and hey-presto, my bolts were done. There was some damaged on the inside where three floors needed replacing and some smashed deadwood by the keel.
