Re: Lead 'boot' - yes/no?

what boat are you considering adding this to? just saying it seems a lot of effort/cost (virgin lead?)/engineering for integrity etc to justify... just get a new boat...

if you stick with the idea maybe consider the bulb keel as an addition that may be a wee bit more already proven by current designs.

Only wondering if you are making a purse out of a sows ear....
good luck

oh... you could always buy a cat

hate to say, but this just sounds wonky... seems trollish, but I may be off base as you have posted more than twice. In any case, I wish you the best with your home brew C shaped lead keel add on project
