Keel / Stem Restoration

by Chris
(Wilton, CT USA)

My father and I are in the process of restoring an old '56 Penn Yan Swift.

Boat looks to be in good condition and have gotten it out on the water a few times, but recently noticed some rotting on on the keel.

Doing some research, I wanted reach out to get your guys' thoughts on the issue.

In your opinion, are we looking at a relatively straightforward repair or does might this require a major overhaul?

We are amateur's at best but have been enjoying the project - before sinking any more money into it I want to see how reasonable this undertaking is.

Pictures attached for reference. -Chris
