Encapsulated iron keels are very common on Perry-designed boats, like the GW42 I've owned for 17 years. Never a moment's problem or concern.

If they're done right, there's no reason encapsulated iron ballast keels should present "structural or stability problems".

Just another old wives tale :-)

The Passport 40 is a very fine yacht. You'll love it.
