Re: Ballast help needed

CONSIDERING our boats have encapsulated keels filled eith CONCRETE, and considering the concrete does not easily remove without a huge concrete drill or c4 and detonator, i would say your keel is just fine n dandy.
you be seeking lead you have wrong boat.
for info and answrs to your formosa/ ct/sea wolfv/ island trader questions, write email to the yahoo group in my signature.
uscg aint gonna remove concrete from encapsulated keel, especially when they can totally splinter a beautiful teakwood interior.

Re: Ballast help needed

The CT41 almost certainly used iron/steel ballast set in concrete, glassed over.
