Subject: Water Tank and Bolts
In reply to: Peter Karczmar 's message, "Keel bolts" on - Saturday - 03/29/08 - 9:15am

Just saw this string of comments regarding the 1968 M40. I also have a wooden 1968 Mariner (Champagne M31). I just bought her last Oct. and commented to my wife that one of the first things I need to do is pull the water tank. She and most others thought I was nuts to go through the hassle of pulling out the water tank. My reasoning was that I had no idea what was going on under that tank! A task I need to do in the next month. I'm surprised they designed the boat with no easy way to get that out. My keel bolts show rusted inside nuts, but probably will not get to replaceing them this year. Pete, how did you get the clearance to remove the bolts? Were you in a travel lift?

The boat was hauled out in dry dock for the work. I don't think you'll regret pulling the tank out and inspecting the keel bolts. Best of luck. Peter
