Now all the lead weights are cowered with kevlar for wear resistance and to prevent myself by being killed by lead poisoning. The front end have gotten a teflon patch to slide more easily into the lead chambers. The stainless steel handles are in the back.Without them it would be very difficult to handle the weights in heavy weather.
Below is a picture with all the weights secured in the extreme aft position. Their intended position when im running down wind in heavy seas, to give the boat directional stability and to increase her mass moment of inertia to help prevent pitchpooling.
