Re: Fiberglass separation on bottom of keel _ Liberty 28

One thing to be VERY concerned about is the material used for ballast. If it is ferrous and water has got to it then it may be rusting. Rust increases in volume by a factor around 6. This will cause the laminate to fail.

While a repair is technically possible it is not likely to be economically feasible.
