To Jeff H
jeff--i have been lurking in the boards for a while and i have always read your posts because they are full of excellent information. we just purchased our first sailboat (we are SO proud and happy) and it is a Helson 22 (75) in great garage kept condition. (paid only 2300.00 for it with a 6hp motor) new electric,sails etc. etc. lots of extra''s. my question is have you ever heard anything bad about a lead swing keel? that is the only thing on the entire boat that i am worried about.
