Thanks for comments, yes there will be a few more pics to post, will upload to same site added onto the others. The pin appears to be different to others I have seen described in that it is a hollow tube and the keel had some form of micre in the pin pivot point.

More pics now uploaded to same site, pass mouse pointer over each pic for full commentary or use slide show feature. I trust they will be helpful for future keel removals. While it worked for me I can't guarantee the methods will work for you and cannot warrant my methods will be suitable for any individual applications.

Rod, That is amazing! It looks as though the whole operation went as smooth as silk, although I bet there were some heart-stopping moments along the way.
Should be kept as a great resource for c22 owners.
Congratulations.
Clive.

Thanks for posting all those pictures Fred. I have downloaded the lot. First time that I've seen the keel box dismantled. I agree with Clive, your whole post is bound to become a great resource for all C22 lovers who will no doubt need to do this work at some stage.

Thanks again

Perhaps we need to change the "off topic" subject stream on the opening page of the forum to a "Tech Hint" where we could "sticky" real hard tech advice such as the photo string on the 22 keel reno and the Qld 18 keel case reno. I must talk to the "Boss and Site Owner" when he gets back, he is presently sailing the Whitsundays on a big cat for a week.

And the real sting is that he didn't ask any of us along to crew for him *sniff* :cry:

We also need a Grammar Nazi page.

The "Boss and Site Owner" either "will PRESENTLY be sailing the Whitsundays" or "is CURRENTLY sailing the Whitsundays". Hopefully Kate will jump in and back me up here.

"Presently" is far too often misused (it does not, never has and hopefully never will mean "at present"), and it's time to stamp out this sort of creeping mis-usage.

Hurrumph!

Nah. Nobody would read it except other Grammar Nazis. Then they'd argue endlessly whether a post properly used the pluperfect form of the past participle. Even they'd get bored.

BTW Any grammar nazis reading this please remember that I have absolutely no understanding of what I just said.

We NEVER get bored. Every day we see new examples that just get us excited all over again.

Nah, been there, done that. And FYI, "Careeled" is not a noun, it's a verb (for those of you who have ANY idea of what I'm talking about).

Oh, look, a noun is a NAMING word, and a verb is a DOING word, OK.

In this particular instance, I could be the subject of the verb "to careel" as in "I Careeled", or the object, as in "I have been Careeled". In both instances, Max, notice I am using the Past PERFECT tense, as in "I Careeled/have been Careeled", and therefore am no longer doing so. This particularly relates to any editing fantasies James may have.

However, in my defence, I have just sent off my membership cheque for 2007/08 and 2008/09, so selected elements of that previous paragraph are not strictly speaking correct. Although, one could argue that the verb form "to be Careeled" simply means that once one has owned a Careel, it's impossible to get away from the bloody things...

Happy now?

One could of course become truly modern and forget the old latin based grammar and devote oneself to Halliday's Functional Grammar.

FYO the word .. or more correctly "utterance" Corolla has been used in this household as a verb .. To Carolle meaning to travel in Mr Toyota's product.

I am still celebrating IVANA !!!!!! with a goodly glass of Mateus every sunset.

The weather is looking good for this coming weekend... now that's worth writing about.
