Keel Repairs
on Sea Holly

Page revised 6 July 2006

In March 2006, these pictures of Sea Holly were sent with a brief e-mail from the owner's grandson that said:

This season the center plate on my grandfathers SeaHawk got rusted stuck. So a few weeks ago he got the boat off the trailer and onto the lawn. Using the main sheet and a couple of blocks and the gate post they pulled the boat onto its side. He then used a crow bar to prize out the centre plate enough to get a metal bar in to prize it out.

Hopefully, the pictures below speak for themselves....
