Replying to:Does this keel weight seem accurate?
I have an RL24 sail no 303. I understand from this forum it was possibly the first RL24 to have a drop keel installed. At present the keel is raised via an electric winch arrangement similar to the types used to pull boats back onto the boat trailer. I decided to weigh the keel to get some idea of the weight I am dealing with so I adjusted the boat on the trailer until the keel could be lowered between two sets of rollers and lowered the keel onto a board across 2 sets of bathroom scales (one set borrowed from a reluctant daughter). I came up with a figure of 88kg. Could this be considered light? What are typical drop keel weights of other RL24s? Thanks Peter
