Taipan 28 - How well offshore?

Correction to earlier: the Taipan does NOT have concrete-encased steel ballast as both Jeff H. and I both earlier assumed. During my osmosis fix (BTW, the hull above the keel was in pretty good shape, but the keel itself was pretty bad) I penetrated the keel in a few spots. It is concrete-encased LEAD. For what that''s worth ...
