Optional keel installation:

  • Question: How to install optional keel?
  • Answer: See below example of keel installation for similar CB290 boat. While FCB290 boat was originally designed as a flat bottom boat, it is also possible to add optional DIY keel to improve performance and directional stability. It can be done by placing elongated semi-rigid structure under air floor while it deflated. There are 2 Velcro straps glued to the bottom of the boat, under air floor. These straps were designed to hold down for example foam swimming noodle, that can act as an improvised keel, or perhaps some other structure, such as shaped wooden keel for example. Easiest and simplest solution would be to purchase $3 large diameter foam swimming noodle in local retail store, such as Walmart or Target. That noodle will imitate inflatable keel when placed under air floor. It also could be possible to place PVC tubing inside that foam noodle, for additional rigidity. Two straps glued on bottom of boat, under air mat, will hold noodle down.

Note: Specifications and accessories are subject to change without notice. Max O/B Motor means: maximum power of outboard motor that can be safely used to plane the boat loaded to the maximum capacity at normal water surface conditions. Please exercise common sense and caution when using maximum motor capacity. Do not jump from wave to wave as new 4-stroke motors are much heavier then 2-stroke and provide extra strain on the transom. Under normal circumstances, with half the maximum persons/load capacity, 50% of maximum O/B power rating may be necessary to put the boat on plane.
