Re: Bolt on Keel

I too would prefer external ballast. It has design advantages in terms of shaping the keel With internal ballast the designer is limited in shaping the keel to a shape that can be pulled from a mold.

Bouncing around the rocky PNW it's nice to have that big lead "bumper" down there.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
