Lene is a Nordic Folkboat.

Before preparing her for antifoulfing we notice tiny riverlets of stained water ouzing from the line between the last clinker strake and the cast iron keel.

There are about 10 each side.

Nothing material but nevertheless constant.

She has been on legs at home since November and the drips are increasing.

What cause?

Folkboat Keel
by: Anonymous

It may just the weight of the boat pressing down on the cast iron keel squeezing water out of the wooden keel/deadwood.

However, are the drips coming from along side the keel bolt positions?

Have the bolts been checked recently?

Might be they need tightening and the seam caulking.
