Dufour 24 Ballast Type

I hope I'm posting in the right Forum- I'm currently looking at a Dufour 24 and I'm trying to find out what type of ballast it has. It's a 1977 and I'm not sure if it's a lead keel or a cast Iron keel. Any ideas would be much appreciated for a new member!

Re: Dufour 24 Ballast Type

My best guess is that it is iron as most EU boats don't use lead, but it is old enough to have lead but is near the cut off.
