Hi could anyone give me some guidance on using ballast please.
Here's the scenario:
I am building an aluminium hull tug boat.
I am at the stage where the hull is water tight .
It is sitting very high in the water at present.
I have loaded it with temporary ballast of steel blocks and water containers.
They weigh 33.7lbs/15.3kgs
I am quite worried that the hull is displacing so much water.
Could you any share thoughts on this amount of ballast for such a small vessel and can you suggest suitable ballast for the
finished model please.
Here is the model tug boat. Thanks for any feedback and guidance.
