Replying to:Keel rusting shackle off
Hi all, I have a moored Mk 1 swing keel. The keel has 4 layers of epoxy primer and no rust anywhere till now. It has just rusted out completely around the lifting cable shackle. A 1/4inch stainless steel shackle. I pressume the rusted keel is cast steel. Any ideas ? - has anyone heard of this happening before ? - do i need a liner around the shackle hole in the keel ? - Should i have a sacraficial annode? - Could -
