As per John Garth, I'd ask the insurer before doing anything.

Sounds like an intereting job Mike - I would ask Bristol perhaps
(although they are expensive) but would also ask Mars as well as Wiggers
in Pickering.

Subject: {Stus-List} Keel Repair

Does anybody have any experience with a keel repair.  I friend of mine
ran his CS 30 hard aground and broke the tailing edge off the aft
section of the keel.  The broke section is 6 inches long and about 1
foot high.It looks like it was hit once in the past and poorly repaired.

What I would like to do is to make a form and pour lead back into the
broke section and refair.  I might add a coule of stainless bolts to
help hold the repair in place.  Lead is easy to melt but I am not sure
if it will bond well to the keel.  We think we will warm the keel as
much as possiblew before the pour.

Any input would be appriciated.
