Keel Band Replacement

The new keel band is fabricated out of 4mm 316 stainless steel. I made a new bobstay fitting too.

The band will be fixed with new 8mm CSK machine screws backed with a length of 50mm x 4mm 316 stainless bedded in Sikaflex. The surfaces will be primed with Sika 205 primer prior to the assembly.

With the keel band bonded as shown, it was time to move to the next task of the interior fit out of new floors etc.
