Where to put your lead corrector weights……

 

P1000409

 

The Phil Evans finished boat at the show, built for Justin Waples, was carrying about 18.5kgs of lead.  It had been fitted as 2x7kgs, and a 4.5kgs section.  It looked as if there was room above the two 7kg weights to tuck the 4.5kg section away on the top.  Phil though had decided to keep the weight as low as possible in the boat and closer to the centre of gravity by using longer bolts to build the weight out horizontally.  Nice touch !
