CS17 Keel questions

Recommended Posts

What type of would is recommended for the keel on a Core Sound 17?  I have access to just about type but need suggestions.

 

Also, should the keel be glassed, epoxied or varnished?

 

Thanks.

We recommend Douglas fir or pine for the keel. I would definitely coat it in epoxy but not fiberglass. The keel is bound to get scraped up and then the glass will make it a nightmare to repair. This was certainly the case when I refinished our CS-20. The glass was just totally useless. This keel was doug fir and held up well for 10 years despite scrapes and cuts etc. I did not replace it just cleaned it up, filled in some spots and re-coated it.
