So I dropped my IOM keel and now it is out of "whack."
Anyone have experience with this and the best way to get back. Or is it as we say "NS" and have to go back to the molding board?

How about a photo showing what out of whack means? normally if someone can make it, it can be repaired but it depends on what stuff and tools you have to hand

Stan,

If it is just bent "Whack" it on the floor. I had that happen to mine in San Diago when the TSA boys bent it, the aft end was about an inch bent up, I grabbed it by the nose and whacked it on the floor a couple of times and it bent quite easily right back into the proper location. There is a steel rod inside the lead and a little lead and filler came off the pointed end but a five minute repair with a little filler and I was good to go.

Hi I did the same a year or so ago and bent the rear end spoke to Graham Bantock and he suggested hitting it on something soft with a rubber hammer worked a treat

Exactly what mine looked like. Since I was in a motel room the only option I had was the floor, I actually started by hitting it on the brick wall outside our room but the carpeted floor worked great with no marks left from the brick wall. I hit it on the floor with the bent part pointed up and it moved back into position quite easily.

It was near midnight and the other folks in the motel may not have been too happy, but they got over it.

Wrap it in a towel from the bathroom, works ok too.

A friend dropped his fin off a first floor balcony whilst trying to paint it. The bulb looked like a sickle, but it was surprisingly easy to tease back into shape with a rubber mallet.

Thanks guys,
Yes I have tried the old "Ekie Thump" on it but wasn't sure how far I could go with it. Good to know about the steel rod.
Watched "Cosmos" last night and it was about led. Don't really feel like touching that anymore!!! Thanks again. See you late Friday night Ted.
