Hi Bud, On Sapphire WS32 #703 I have drilled and drained water from the keel. I have removed the covering over cast lead keel which had seperated from the hull allowing water into voids around lead and now the area is drying. The lead has been put in place without encapsulating leaving 1/2 to 1 inch void. Looks like the center chunk of lead would go though the roof in a rollover. So the plan is to pore resin and encapsulate the keel. What would you recommend using? Any idea how much? Looks like at least 10 gal. thanks John
