Post Nine Hundred Dollar Luxury Yacht Episode 7 Removing The Keel
In this episode, the boat is taken to a place near my house with a lot of boats and a crane. The previous boat lost its keel shortly after I bought it. I continued to use it as a camper on the water for ten more years without the keel. I'd motor to a place to anchor and live on the boat. I want the new boat to be able to sail, so I wanted to inspect the keel pivot point and the bolt it pivots on.

Since the keel is a 1,500 pound (about 700kg) chunk of cast iron, I went to this place with the crane and asked Doug, the yard manager if someone there could lower the keel and sandblast it, then re-install the keel after I had a chance to paint it. Doug said "Sure, I can do that" and away we went.

I had no idea what i was doing. Here is a link to the video.
