Sounds good.  I didn't get anything like this when I bought the ACB system
so may just go with the keel weight system as you say (I was too cheap to
buy something I figured I could make for myself (particularly with the
freight on 6 pounds of lead from the US)).  What format is the course in?
Wonder if there is an online version (I do remember a link on the old
Halcyon site to a site with info on ballast, don't think I saved the URL),
I'll have to search around.
