09/29/2005 6:57 AM Pacific Time I have a problem with water seeping in from around my Keel lock down bolt. Any ideas as to how I can fix it. I do not want to do away with the bolt all together.

screwed the bolt in........then used silicone to extend the bolt hole.........into the compartment....and get a good seal........

I used Teflon plumber's tape. My boat is wet full time these past four years. Not a drop of water. Of course, I never use the locking bolt for its intended purpose.
