Grainger stock no 6W045 The keel cable is 3/16 stainless wire 7X19. This cable needs a thimble put on one end with a nicopress. The thimble should be large enough to allow a 3/8th bolt to pass through it. It is best to change the cable with the boat on the trailer. The bolt holding the cable to the keel is likely to be rusted in. Also it is easier to remove the winch in order to change the cable than to try to change it with the winch in place.
The pivot bolt for the keel is 5/8 and the hole in the keel is 11/16 The side force is not supposed to be on the bolt. The keel is supposed to ride on the side of the trunk.
