New look like the left pic, junk look like the right pic. If you have an iron keel you can replace them like these pics. Lead keel, not so much.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
