Bud -

I have seen advise that suggests that the best way for me to build a counterpoise on a Westsail is to tap into the encapsulated lead keel with a stainless bolt by drilling down from the bilge. You said that my boat has the three piece lead ingot arrangement when you surveyed her. Is this a good idea? If it is, where is the best place to drill? I have a dynaplate on the boat that the cable from the mast attaches to. Would that be just as good? Thanks for any advice.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
