    Just come across this, very useful for ballast, can be bagged and placed in position, or resined in place.

    Nice to see a specialist retailer for this kind of thing.
    In the past, I've obtained lead shot from huntin and shootin shops (well represented in this area - Cumbria.)

    BTW I've found that my "Wubba" continues to work well. (A mix of lead shot and silicone rubber.)

    Well Fred hopefully my submarine and the Wubba stay in one piece! (Yes you don't want to scatter lead shot in pond mud.)
