2014-15 Refit


REBEDDING THE KEEL



The keel bolts had not been inspected since the mid 1970's.  The keel was removed and sandblasted.  It was found that three pairs of bronze bolts were in fine condition and were refurbished and reinstalled.

 

The two single wrought ironbolts at the front and back were in poor condition and were replaced in aluminium bronze.

 

The keel was epoxied and rebedded on caulking

cotton and Sicaflex.  The galleries giving access to the nuts were plugged with iroko and epoxied.

 

The rebedding was videoed by Suffolk Yacht Harbour Limited.
