I am wondering about the ballast in a union 36 being iron. Does anybody know if they had problems with rust and intrusion of water into the ballast cavity. Was the iron ballast enclosed in a one piece,( sealed hull ),or was the ballast attached separate then enclosed with second ( bottom), part of hull and then seamed ? Also I was wondering what are the tell-tell sign’s that the iron started rusting ? Would one have to drill holes along the ballast area to check? I know a lot of questions and I was always told to look for a sailboat with lead ballast. Thanks for any response.
