Any help would be appreciated.
Which Sterne boat is it?
Most of Sterne's bulbs were attached with a nail that runs vertically from the bottom of the bulb up into the keel. The position of this nail is also, if I'm not mistaken the CG
All of my keels (I have three of them) are also painted in some sort of hard epoxy type paint, so the seams of the 2-piece lead, and nail are smoothly covered.
Except, I banged the lead on one enough to expose the nail.
I think at some point I asked Sterne about that as well.
