So, this happened yesterday. I opened the keel bolt access hatch in the floor of my 1984 Hunter 34 and discovered this light grey sandy/ crystalline stuff around the aft keel bolt. The bolt itself appears in good condition but what is this stuff? Is it a by-product of corrosion or did it just settle here? Anyone else seen this? I sail SF Bay. No sandy beaches around here.
