Bolt on, bolt off
The pre-survey went well yesterday and Rebecca and I learned quite a few things. One of which is that the keels of certain Leopard 4600s bolt on and thus can be removed. This is a good thing, the surveyor says, as it allows damage like this to be repaired. He said not to worry, that it can all be made good as new.
