Replying to:RL24 MKIII Keel Bolt Cover
I recently purchased RL24 MKIII, Rego NE696N, Sail No. 213 and find that the keel bolt appears to have fibre-glass covers in the cabin sealing it. I know from the two previous owners that these covers have been in place for at least 5 years, as they didn't touch them. Firstly, is this part of the build standard for the later MKIII's and secondly, how often should the keel bolt be inspected for condition (if so then how)? I haven't sailed the boat yet but as far as I am aware the keel operates satisfactorily, however, rust is evident and the boat has been in the water for a few weeks on one previous occaision. Thank you and regards, John Whitelaw
