Re: Iron Keel opinions

I don't like the idea that a boats floating, and my surving perhaps, is dependent on a heavy piece of anything bolted through the floor.

A well designed lead encapsulated keel is best. (escept perhaps for racing) Anything else is merely an economical substitute. What price economy. Only you can tell.
