K30 shoes made by CJB Marine (See Links) are 6mm on the bottom bent along the centreline to replicate the keel shape and 3mm around the sides. These have continual weld making them totally watertight KeelShoe.jpg (15542 bytes)
These new water tanks can be removed if the need arises. The new tanks have baffles etc. The original S/S tank stretched the width of the boat and must have been installed before the deck was fitted. Unfortunately lack of baffles, poor welding and thin S/S caused the tank to leak. Refitwatertank.jpg (23067 bytes)
