Re: Tell Me About Jeanneaus

I cant see the reasoning here in relation to steel or lead having more or less shock absorption. There seems to be a conception that we all go around slamming into immovable objects, when lots of the boats like mine have encapsulated keels and yes I have ran aground more than once but only in mud or sand. I would rather hit coral or rock with something more forgiving than fiberglass. At the end of the day its swings and roundabouts.
