Re: [bolger] Re: 5200-keel connection
- I can't see the motivation behind eliminating keel bolts.
Use keel bolts to hold the keel and spread the stresses. Use 5200 to keep
everything dry and for a little extra insurance.
You're adding ballast, what's a few more bolts?

I recently ran onto a situation in a kitchen where someone had used
construction adhesive to glue a large thin granite slab to a wall above
a granite countertop. Of course given the surface area being glued and
the weight of the stone the adhesive was more than strong enough to
support it.... when it failed (in dramatic fashion) what happened was
that the outer paper layer simply separated off the drywall and crashed
down with the granite and the still-intact glue layer.
So yes, the 5200 might hold, but will the outer skin on the bottom of
the boat be strong enough to support everything or will it fail by
stripping off a layer of fiberglass or perhaps delaminating the
plywood? Keel bolts serve to spread the stress into structural members.
