Re: Building Arabella (An Atkin Ingrid)
I went scrounging around for 500 pounds of lead a few years ago, it was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I got a good chunk of it from a fellow who picked up an old sailboat and was salvaging what he could, most of the lead keel had been snapped up by guys that cast their own bullets. Anywhere between one and two dollars seems to be the going rate. I'll be building another big boat one of these days and I'm starting to think scrapping out and old 'glass boat might be the way to go.
Boats, like whiskey, are all good.
