Re: C-400 Keel, is the lead encapsulated or what?

Mark Barendt

Good news, I have the real answer. 

Called Catalina's technical line, and got put through straight away to Gerry Douglas. 

So, the C400's fin keel front to rear length matches the stub length exactly.

The shoal draft keel though is longer front to rear, so it sticks out past the end of the fiberglass stub. 

Fairing is used to fill the gap behind the stub between the hull and keel.
