Yes I have a full length one that I welded ready but requires alot of work to complete. I have to remove the old, remove all the broken off screws, plane level, dry off, re-coat and seal the keel, then place the new band on.
If you cut off the scrap bit and secure the flap that’s all for now. I’ll take her out of service shortly.
Just finished Heart’s keel band! She’s ready for a splash.
Fully sealed keel timber, 3 pieces of 316 st/steel welded into a continuous length to stop tear out, 66 bronze screws, all facing fwd/aft to go faster...
Thank you, next..
