Glassed over Keel Bolts – Jeanneau Eolia 25

10 Mar

Never a good sign when you come across amateur fiberglass work around the keel of a sailboat. In this case the keel boats have been glassed over which was probably effective in stopping the leak! At least for now. Of course there is no way for an owner or a surveyor to judge the condition of the bolts anymore and the bolts themselves are now soaked in  water year round slowly corroding as the water is depleted of oxygen…

Leaks through the hull to keel joint should be repaired by resealing or caulking the joint, from the outside.Image
