I agree that it is less wetted surface with lead. With full keel and interior ballast then lead is going to make a significant difference regardless of cost, but with external keels, particularly fin ones, the added structural strength of steel makes for more streamlined shapes.

To the thread - I'm absolutely amazed that we haven't degenerated in a downward spiral regarding plastic production boats yet!
