[QUOTE=Chris A;615045]Hi guys.

Probably a stupid question but for the life of me I can't seem to keep the inflatable keel straight/centre from bow to stern. I have a Seapro 430HD with alloy deck.

When having the stern end aligned I struggle to get the valve on the bow centre to the cut out in the alloy deck. When one lifts the sib it's also not running straight from bow to stern.

This is most probably just my in-experience but thought I'll ask if there's an easy solution.


Ican vouch for soapy water and lifting the bow, WORKS A TREAT

That's a long keel. Check if you can drill a small hole at keel's end and secure a small rope and tie it to inner engine plate while you temper it.

Happy Boating
