I'll trade you arms because I think mine fell off! Along with my shoulders, neck and feet! Looking forward to a few days of recuperationMy arms ache just reading about this...........
Nicely done Mark, is your next endeavor writing a book, "The Days That Followed Matthew" or was that Years........ everyone that happens to come across this write up has got to admire you for your unrelenting focus, my goodness you certainly have a gift to analyze, create and implement I am in awe......... maybe that should be the title.
Yep, steel keel. The majority of the keel is in good shape except for the areas around the keel/hull joint where there was water intrusion. In addition I had a few spots of rust where the keel had rough spots from the casting that had improper fairing (looked factory except for a few spots where the repair was done wrong too!). I did multiple treatments with OSPHO and several grinding sessions to remove and neutralize the rust and the barrier coat will be the protection. Time will tell.that's a steel keel right?
what are you using to protect it? reason I ask is the Oday I looked at a while back, the iron keel was in amazing shape due to the , what I can only describe as road tar, that had been applied and not touched in years.
Hopefully the old owner still frequents this forum and can chime in.
I remember this being nasty stuff to try to remove from an old aircraft engine. Not sure if I'd use it on a keel though.Sailboat Owner's Guide to Corrosion - Protection (Collier 13 - 15)
Cosmoline, since the Civil War. Used today, mostly to preserve firearms. Collier wrote about it's use in his book The Boatowner's Guide to Corrosion.
