Re: Lead 'boot' - yes/no?

If your boat is initially tender adding 50lbs. to the keel will not help much. Your increase in displ and your new waterplane will help some and you will see an increase in stability once you hit about 20 degrees of heel. What is the current draft of the boat? If we knew what kind of boat you had it would help.
