It’s about time we get to work restoring our rusty keel back to better than new. Cast Iron keels just want to rust, and ours is no different. After a much needed media blasting we get to work with silica and epoxy filling in the pitting before lathering on a nice epoxy barrier coat. We’re counting the days before the keel and boat are ready for a reunion!

Thanks for watching-

With love

Here’s what we *think* we know about her past. Keep in mind we bought her at auction without ever meeting the owner! The owner was sailing along and ran aground – hard. Hard enough that the keel pivoted and pushed the aft end up into the hull. This force cracked the internal grid in several places and broke a portion of the grid free from hull. At some point an inspection was done, insurance was called and decisions were made. See for how we came to own her!
