Re: Keel pin bracket design

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the reply. Your experience is a wealth of knowledge. It is appreciated. I still have lots of planning to do. It's a big project but these boats are a pleasure. Thinking about using nylon washers to take up the gap. I'll post any progress when the work begins.

Keel pin bracket design

I have a C 22 and am about to replace my keel pin brackets. I see two versions in drawings and pictures. One shows the inside edge of the the 3/8 inch plate flush with only the pin itself extending where the keel rides. The other design shows the 1 1/4 inch round rod that holds the pin extending thr...

Anchor technique discovered

After camping for 12 days on Lake Allatoona I needed to find an easy way to anchor the boat deep enough to save the bottom from a beating when the wakes tossed her about but wanted access to board and unload. Here is my solution. It worked great. I put a dock bumper on the anchor line and had a moor...

Keel position when trailering

Just bought a 22 Chrysler. It came with the original trailer which is a perfect fit. My question is should I lower the keel to ride in the cradle on the trailer while towing? Or should I let the winch hold the weight with the keel up in trunk?
Thanks for any advice.

Auto braking keel winch
