Replying to:RL28 Clunky Keel
Can anyone help with a suggestion to stop the keel of my RL28 going 'clunk klunk etc ad nauseam' When the boat is at anchor in a rolly swell the keel gets wafted back and forth and is hitting the bottom of the keel box. I've dived under it and noticed there is a teflon (or other material)strip for some of the way along the inside of the box but some may be missing. Is this damaging the hinge bolt surround in the cast iron keel or is there a nylon bush in there. Could this need replacing? How do you drop the keel if I need to to get at it or inspect it? Thanks
