Keel position

Recommended Posts

Guest Rob

Hey there, thinking of jumping back into the J22 after a long absence, and I'm looking at buying what looks like a pretty good used boat. 700 series. The current owner says the keel has been faired. Heading over to look at the boat next week, and I was wondering if there were any fairly easy ways to determine whether or not the keel has been faired, and whether or not it's in the correct position, which I'm assuming is max forward. I've looked at the class specification for measuring keel position and minimum thickness, but the document references a jig, which I'm not going to have unfortunately. Would love to know if there are some fairly simple ways to find out if the keel is where it should be.
