This is a project that we have been working on for the past 3 months here at my shop. This thing is a canting (swinging) keel housing for a 50' racing sailboat that is going to be doing the Trans Pacific Yacht race (San Pedro, CA to Honolulu). It is all 316 stainless with the exception of the bronze bushings. We have just finished the housing and axle and are getting ready to start fabrication of the actual keel which will be made out of 5/8" T-1 plate and wrapped in carbon fiber. I thought this was a pretty interesting project and wanted to share somthing a little different with the desert racing community. More pics to come.
