Re: Super Maramu with cast iron keel?


I don't think any Amel was made with a lead keel. European boats commonly use cast iron. There is a bit more maintenance but as long as you stay on top of it, not too much work. The coatings on the newer boats probably reduce maintenance compared to those of us with 70's and 80's vintage Amels.

was a wing keel made of cast iron.

I thought the Maramu's were all lead?
