Hi all, 

I made these 3 images of the keel bolts in my Hanse 342 from 2006, standard keel. 
To me, all looks fine except for those half-circled crack to the right of the front single bolt (close to the mast support). 

What do you think? 

Thanks, Best

1. I see only 2 images
2. Check this half circled "Crack"
To me this is not a crack, it seems to be a cut from the hole saw they used for cutting the inner shell.
If it is no crack, than i would not worry.
Check it and tell us ;-)
3. I would rather check the other bolts above the metal plate. Two of them have something like brown watercourse tracks (correct word?). Maybe in rough weather there is some water coming into the boat.
Seawater is never good for stainless steelbolts. You should check these!
