Re: Iron Keel opinions

That's pretty much the way it is with iron - Beneteau didn't do anything special there.

The bottom line here is lead is the best but iron is perfectly acceptable in most cases and even has some advantages, like the aforementioned bolt removal.

It's also a lot cheaper - that's why the euro builders use it so much.
