Has anyone ever installed a bladder in the keel water tank? Is there any other method of making this space clean enough for potable water again? Is the lifting point that passes through the tank really strong enough to raise the vessel?
Thank you all for a very informative forum.  My new boat is already befitting!!

I dried the tank after a good sanding and cleaning gave it a few layers of special epoxy coating. Could not find a blatter in the right size.
