lead ballast vs iron/cement

Jeff,
yeah, I''d like to check that out. What do I type in the search space?
Thanks,
Before I comment I''d like to read it.However, I will say this,E 32''s, as you know, run about $15 to 35k, the centerboarders even less sometimes. So if by saying the insurance company wanting to total his boat was linked to the extence of the dammage, mabey his boat was only worth a little. Idon''t know. I also don''t know what was hit or how fast he was going. How many times in the past a collision accured. Was the ballast container filled with water, weak and delamiated. Was it a charter boat before.Who knows. You will just jump on any situation that makes you feel good about what you belive.
I''ve been in the sailing seen now for some twenty-five years which I know doesn''t come close to you but I have asked around- all around- and nobody in my imediate area has seen a ballast pushed up through the sealing membrane. I''m not saying that it doesn''t happen, but I am quite shure that it would take a violant collision to do what happened to this person''s E32.
And I don''t need ''fair winds,flat water and favorable currents'', I''ve been out in 10 to 12 footers with 45kts sustained wind and my E32 was splended. I know my boat is exactly what you hate but if you want to insult me and my boat, send me an email.
How do you think your boat would fair in a bad collision? Never mind I''ve seen and repaired plenty.

Dennis
