    Posted: 15 June 2018 at 21:54
Hello,
I'm shopping for a 461 or 470 and have come across a nice 2010 470. It has a 2.3m draft with a "T" bulb keel. My plan is to circumnavigate, mostly singlehanded, so I would prefer a swept keel rather than the T bulb keel, to avoid hangups on fishing gear, flotsam, etc. 

Does anyone have experience converting the T build to the swept version? If so, do you know what that cost? (Please specify if you found the replacement keel second hand or new. and if you were able to sell the old keel.)

Thanks.

You could contact Hacon in Poland. They are building the keels.
