everyone - need keel solution

On my boat, there is vermiculite sand poured in a cavity on the leading edge of the keel. This is to absorb the hit if you run aground without causing de-lamination. You might try to figure out if it''s just a small cavity with "sand" in it that is leaking, or if the (usually iron) ballast is wet and rusting before you decide what to do..
