Ballast pattern - wing - for shallow draught classes.

Printed ballast pattern. If the standard designs do not suit please contact us directly with your custom requirements.

If you cannot source a good ballast locally, having one cast at a local foundry from a pattern may be the solution. There are two basic types.

Winged planform

Suitable for 36R, 6M and A Class and similar shallow draught classes. To the same design used for some years on the prototype A Class SWORD and more recently on 6 Metres. The length/breadth and breadth/depth ratio is fixed. Choose from several target weights. Supplied in fore and aft parts up to a target weight of 10 kgs. Above that target weight there will be three parts.

Conventional bulb

Please see SAILSetc product BALLAST PATTERN - BULB. Suitable for 65, 36R, IOM, M, 10R and other similar deep draught classes. Choose from length/diameter ratios of 9.5 or 8, from breadth/depth ratios of 1 and 1.2, and a variety of standard target weights. The pattern can be supplied in port and starboard halves or fore and aft halves depending on how you or your foundry intends to make the mould. Supplied in either 2 or 4 parts.

The parts of the pattern are either provided with jigsaw puzzle type connections or dowel holes and dowels.
