    @Will Gilmore I was planning to have some bolt from a piece of steel in the concrete to the inside of the boat and heavy filleting of thickened epoxy on the exterior of the keel so its an integral part of the hull. but I revised the plan I have a better Idea for the keel. Ill stack 2" wide piece of steel on top of a laminated plywood keel. that will reduce the draft to 1' 3" and ill be better able to distribute the weight of the ballast longitudinally.
