Swing keel inspection

Post by pwgun »

HI
My boat has previously had someone cut a big inspection hole thru the grp ,next to the cable box.
I notice in some pics what looks to be a smaller cover.
Is this correct or should i re-glass it up (presently out of water and i have not seen it afloat as yet)
cheers

Hi, where is the hole exactly? The winding mechanism has a perspex inspection window on the top of the winding gear box but there shouldn't be holes in tbe side of the central trunking on which it is mounted.

Regards, Alistair.
