If you had to replace centerboard
on 2800# boat that has 1100# ballast what would you choose. I'm thinking -
Mild steel- cheap
,easy to work with,some weight to it but will rust easily.
, harder to work with, heavier may still be corrosian issues.
Aluminum- probably have to use thicker plate so more money
, lighter, right alloy will have no corrosion
issues in salt water
easy to work with.
