Re: 100 lb of Lead Vs 100 lb of concrete

you guys are failing to mention th e lead as a biohazard. will raise your lead levels in blood and cause learning curve disorders--and agression increases.

concrete doesnt do that. is easier to obtain as it isnt a biohazard substance and wil not create learning curve dysfunction.

just add stuff to it as did the taiwanese when they made many boats with concrete keels--they added steel, lead chunks, whatever was in the yard that could be added.
