Iron, about 700#. You can sell it for scrap.

Rent a truck and take it to a scrap yard. When I disposed of ferrous scrap this summer I got $.12/lb. That's $84 for 700 lbs. A truck is less than $20 at Home Depot or Lowes.

Don't put it the municipal waste stream. Locally the municipality would pay $30 in tipping fees to dispose of this valuable resource if was mixed in the waste stream.

Your initial inquiry was unclear. I believe you meant the disposal guy won't take the boat unless the keel is lead. If the keel was lead the scrap value would have been about $800 vs. $80 for iron.
