iron keel

Cast Iron is an excellent material for the keel, it can be cast in most shapes and is strong, heavy and durable. That said the reply regarding blasting/grinding and barrier coating with epoxy worked well for me. 15 years after barrier coating I had only a few spots of rust on a previous boat.
