Default Dumas Crockett

I'm working on a old Dumas USN Crockett. I could use some help with how to determine proper ballast, any photos or literature would be appreciated. NJ

Love that mast build. Did you use a standard soldering or a resistance soldering set to do the solder joints?

Had a friend years ago who built one of these. Very Top Heavy! Keep as much heavy stuff as low in the hull as you can.
