steel keel?

Not open for further replies.


I've got a C22 with a fixed keel. Is this iron or lead? Speaking of lead, anyone know a resource for a good ol' fashioned lead line, for sounding depths? Thanks.

West Marine?

I haven't looked at their catalog but I can't imagine they wouldn't carry it. I'm not sure about the keel but would be surprised (I often am) if it was iron. Could someone enlighten us please? LaDonna


I believe it is lead

The fixed keel would have lead encapsulated in fiberglass. The swing keel is the "iron baby". If you Email/call the Catalina Factory, I am sure they will tell you for sure. Regards, Ted
