See my post on pouring lead for the keel and centreboard. The drawings are wrong for the centreboard - it only takes 6kg - but correct for the keel.

Thanks, Steve! I just received my invoice for the hull and timber kit and had ordered the study plans/build book in 2018 which didn't include that level of detail. I placed an order for 125 lbs of lead (56.7 kg) this past Saturday so that will be available when I get to that point. Lead is getting hard to find (still) around here especially with environmental regulations, ammo shortages and people casting bullets, batteries, and it's also going for a premium. Before anything else wacky happened I needed to get some savings where I could.
