Regarding this post of yours:
I received nine down votes recently for responding to a post from @Tanton Y_M about "Perfect galley Bob!" - I begged to differ about the sink and was punished severely for it, labeled a stalker then because I down-voted some bullshit you said about me.
It's not stalking to once in awhile read a thread using a browser where I'm not logged in to SA, so my ignore filters don't apply and I can see the disparaging references to myself, such as those by @SloopJonB that I found today.
This is crazy.
Saw you Keel bolt post- same issue on my Columbia 34 Mk II- maybe uglier...
Did you do that work yourself or have a yard do it? I was wondering what it would cost....not willing to take it on myself (can you say chicken?).
I had some of the work done - the keel was removed in San Rafael for trucking here. The yard here did the sandblasting, making a cradle for it and obviously all the hoisting of things. I did all the fairing, installing the new hardware, sealing, filling & fairing the joint and the final barrier coats.
If you are going to just pay for it all then expect a big bill - I spent several $K 15 years ago - I'd guess you'd be looking at $10K at least to have it all done for you. Only a guess though - you'd need to ask some yards - their prices vary wildly depending on where you are.
