ballast material weight vs ballast weight

Dinghies, day sailers, world cruisers. Many small sailboats make ideal rowboats or low-speed power boats.

ballast material weight vs ballast weight

Postby csikoscs » Fri Aug 17, 2018 12:32 am

My question is whether the term "ballast material weight" includes or excludes the weight of the "can" into which the ballast material is placed.
Having read the instruction twice I am almost sure that the ballast material weight is above the weight of the can, but it would be nice to receive some confirmation.
Thanks.
