You indicated in another thread that the boat is a Tur 80. I googled "Tur 80" and found a web page
in swedish for the boat. Apparently it has iron ballast. If you look closely at the first pic in the original post, the seam between the two halves of the hull seems to be spreading. My guess is that this is because the iron of the keel is corroding and forcing the halves apart. If that is indeed what is happening it's not only very bad news (as it will make the repair that much more difficult), but it also indicates that the damage has been there for some time.
Deplacement: 2,2 ton
Långköl (järn): 0,9 ton
Displacement: 2.2 (metric?) tons
Long Keel (Iron): 0.9 tons
Apparently, it's a late '60's or early '70's design.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
