More questions:

When I mentioned getting this boat I was advised to change the pivot bolt on the keel.

Is there an easy way to do that? I think I can hold the forward end with a jack and blocks of wood and put some tapered wood strips beside it in the trunk to keep it steady. I should be able to drive the old bolt out with a new one. Will that work or am I missing something? I was also thinking of just cutting the top off the trunk and then I would be able to see what might be done. If the trunk is plywood and fibreglass I would think it would be easy enough to open er up and have a look.

Thanks, Russ

Russ, First I'd see what you got. May not need replacing. My boat is a 26 so may not be the same. I've read of some having a sacrificial bolt, meant to wear out eventually. Mine had a ferrule to work as a pulley. We borrowed a hydrolift at the marina and lifted the boat two feet clear of the water, with the keel straight down. The ferrule was in two pieces and had cut my cable. The bolt was very easy to remove. We went to town and found a like sized diameter brass tubing and reused the old bolt. A blind sailor two slips down from me held up the new frerrule and two washers and I slipped the bolt through. Less than five minutes. But the keel was not in our way. Good luck Kelly

Kelly, There is something jamming the keel. It won't come all the way flush with the bottom. If I crawl under there with a light and look at the attachment point there is a caribiner or something up in there. I think it is preventing the keel from being raised all the way. I am in southern Idaho and the closest marina that may have a lift would be Salt Lake City. Thats a bit far.

Unless someone has a better plan I think I will raise the stern end high enough to lower the keel to get a good look at it. That seems to me the easiest. Lots of wood for support and a good jack and leave the boat setting in the bunks on the trailer.

Luck yes I need it. Thanks, Russ
