IP 38 Keels

I understand that earlier model Island Packets were constructed using a concrete and scrap iron slurry in the encapsulated keels. Do they still use that material? If not, when did they stop? Specifically looking at IP 38s.... Have there been any issues with the earlier keels?

Idle curiosity at this point...
