Dave -
I looked long and hard at numerous (9) IP38s before I bought mine. During my search I heard about and saw a couple of boats that had had issues with rudder delamination in the past, but did not find any with keel issues of any kind.

Re: materials - I toured the factory this past October and it appears that they still use iron and/or lead with concrete, then topped and sealed with fiberglass.
