Lead in sailboat keels?
I am in the boat repair business. Occasionally it is not worth the $$ and effort to fix up an old boat, so I scrap them. Re-usable parts are removed and sold. In the past I have taken the lead keels to a local re-cycler and received $0.18 per pound. They are paying more now, but as a gun collecter, I am thinking about re-using some of the lead.
I am scrapping out a sailboat that has about 5,000 pounds of lead in the keel. Any ideas?
