Keel For 1980 Lockley/Newport Surprise

Thread starter #1

I am new to the forum.

I have a 1980 Lockley/Newport Surprise.

I lost my keel in the Barnegat bay when I capsized her last week.

I am looking for a Surprise owner who would be willing to let me trace a template and take measurements off the keel of their Surprise. I am planning on having a new keel fabricated from stainless, but need accurate measurements to give to my fabricator before he can proceed.

I am located near Allentown, PA in the Lehigh Valley. I am willing to travel to wherever the boat is located to retrieve the measurements.

I really miss Surprise and am anxious to get her back in the water.

Thanks in advance!
