Replying to:Keel Movement
G'day All I am writing to ask what sort of reasonable limit is there for slop in the keel of an RL24. My boat RL124 does have a bit of a clunk when rocking excessively when the keel is down. There are small longitudinal stress cracks in the gel coat along the fillet between the hull and the keel box. They dont apear to move or propagate during rocking of the boat. Is this just a normal thing with swing keels or do I have to shim it. I havent jumped in the water with the keel extended to feel the amount of play so not sure as to the severity. Any advice appreciated Regards Dave Martin
