RL 28 - specifications of the swing keel?
We are seeking the weight and/or dimensions for a swinging keel of an RL28. The keel has been lost due to a collision at sea and the information would be greatly appreciated.

RL 28 - specifications of the swing keel?
Just out of interest how did the RL28 handle with the loss of the keel (ie capsize?).

I am not sure about the specs - but if you can get under it you might be able to work it out (I think). If you can measure measure the box it came in.. use the drawing on the links page. From that you can get the volume. The weight is then the Volume x Spec.Gravity (depends on if you use Lead or something else)

But hopefully someone else knows :)

The swing keel
I am assured that the swing keel is steel. We ran into a problem when we bought our RL28! Yea! in that the keel jammed half way up, tube worms in salt water. We fixed this by removing the table and thence the top of the keel box. If you do this you can get a fairly good idea of the dimensions. "suck it and see"
