1010Re:: Re: [privateer20] Re:: Drop Keel Overhaul
- Apr 1, 2015Indeed my dropping line failed once in a heavy sea. This was due to a aluminium clam on the steel line. (It shoot have been copper.) Since I entered shallow water the keel was banging on the ground so I needed to lift it as soon as possible. After some fiddling with extra lines under the boat I managed to get the plate half way up and, on return in the harbour, could by diving get a line trough the hole to get the plate fully up.
Since the steel line is now clammed correctly and controlled regularly I do not expect any more failing dropping lines. (Only the line that goes down is of steel.)
