I'd rethink that. That would eliminate a big chunk of the new and late model European boats for example. Lead is the highest performance and most expensive choice but iron keels work perfectly well, don't have to be a maintenance nightmare and have some benefits vs lead re: keel bolts.

There have been a number of posts about them - check them out before dismissing them based on Internet rumours.

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.
