    Hi
    I own a A35 from 2007, and would like to re-shape the keel. For this I am looking for the section profile of the keel fin in order to make templates.
    thanks for any advice,

    kind regards
    Jocki

    And why do you want to reshape the keel?

    Good Morning and thanks for your reply,
    the keel is uneven, not fair. this is not resulting from bad antifouling job rather than overall fairness.
    I will keep span and chord length, just intending to have a exact true shape, which it is not at the moment.
    so before I am hitting it with a sander, I need to know where to go. I will most likely scan the keel in order to check potential asymmetry and then make up templates, that have the exact section shape.
    so, the section shape they used would be of interest. Of course it would be possible to derive the shape form the scanned dimenions, but I rather would know the original shape.
    thanks for any advice,
    kind regards
    Johannes
