This is what Boat yard nightmares are made of... Fixing the Keel...
In this episode, Nandji brings on a potential worst nightmare... Sitting too long on the hard stand, the lead/steel weight of the keel has oxidised, causing rust and the fibreglass to delaminate. How far down the rabbit hole do we travel... If you are going to do a job right, you do it right the first time. After juggling any thoughts and short cuts in my mind, I do what I know should do and cut it all off (half the keel) and ay up new fibreglass. A job I do not want to repeat any time soon.
