  1. Would be most grateful if any Springer owners could advise on the quantity / type and weight of ballast to use on a 25ft Springer with inboard engine and small keel. She sits well / nice and evenly in the water but rolls more than th other Springer I have encountered. We put 150 kg of bagged gravel in the bilge nearest the bow, but have not accessed the one nearest the stern yet as she came pre fitted out. So our options are 1. Use a denser material ( pig iron?, lead ingots) in the existing mid / prow bilge 2. Dissemble our rear mid / stern bilge and add some ballast ( stone / pig iron / lead) 3. Live with the rolling and accept that it's just a Springer quirk. Footnote: she does not right herself that quickly when climbing on and off, which leads me to believe it is worth trying for a bit more ballast Thanks in advance
