Re: Iron Keel opinions
That's pretty much the way it is with iron - Beneteau didn't do anything special there.
The bottom line here is lead is the best but iron is perfectly acceptable in most cases and even has some advantages, like the aforementioned bolt removal.
It's also a lot cheaper - that's why the euro builders use it 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.
