Keel bolts/nuts -Paint or not?

Just finished painting the bilge. I've painted around the keel bolts/nuts for now.

I do get a little bit of water in the bilge (rain water) which has caused the nuts to rust a little. Nothing too serious tho. Will track down any leaks this season and fix em in the Autumn.

Tempted to hammerite the nuts to help protect them.. good idea or bad?

Clean then back to bare metal treat with rust killer then paint with a good quality paint.

Ah.. good idea. Will do!

3rd attempt at raising the new mast to see if all the rigging fits tonight. Fingers crossed. Hopefully the last adjustments we made will work.
