66941Long Term Immersion of Micro-series Salient Keels
- Oct 1, 2011What might be some alternate construction methods/treatments of keels such as those on the Micro and Long Micro if they aren't only immersed periodically for relatively short durations? Would there be any noticeable difference in requirements for permanent immersion (6 months plus, say) in either salt or fresh water environments?
There's Peter Lenihan's documented approach, if still available online, which, if memeory serves, was approved by PCB. Are there others? Was Peter's more for perceived increase in strength/durability than to do with continuous immersion? To fill or not to fill?
