I am looking at purchasing this '78 Frances. It is most definitely a project boat and my main concern are the cracks on the keel. It appears to be a bolted on lead keel and the cracks appear to be in the paint along the edge of the lead only along about half of the lead on both sides. Does this look structural to anybody or does it just need to be sanded down, calked, and painted again? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
I am trying to post the pictures now.
