It is fitted into a recess in the hull in the area of the keel box by means of stainless steel bolts. The aerofoil Swing Keel is cast iron and incorporates a stainless steel pivot at the leading edge.
The Swing Keel is raised and lowered by a hydraulic ram powered by an electrically driven pump with a hand operated back-up. All the hydraulics are easily accessible for any routine maintenance.
