Replying to:RL28 ballast
I would like to add additional ballast to my RL28 to improve its stability in gusty winds with full main and genoa. I have increased the forestay to enable me to fly a larger genoa (15 sq M)but need to add extra weight to counteract this. There is no room under the sole to add lead, and I did not want to fill the bilges up. I had thought of bolting and glassing extra lead onto the sides of the skeg. I would appreciate any thoughts on this or other approaches.
