Keel bolts torgue


Boris Keselman
 

Does anyone knows what torque table for 1" keel bolts and one 3/4"bolt on our C400 fin keel boats?

Cheers,
Boris

#234

Boris,

3/4" = 96 ft-lbs or 130 Nm

1"    = 165 ft-lbs or 224 Nm

Regards,
Ken

Here's the table for the full range of keel bolts sizes.  As far as I can remember those values are with non-lubricated threads but I'd want to put some anti-galling compound on.
