The new ballast is lead shot, and because of its reduced density Tullos has extended the ballast compartment fore and aft. The shot was poured into the hull after the compartment was blasted and then coated with two layers of Interprotect. Now that the yacht has been floated and the ballast properly trimmed, the shot has been encapsulated with epoxy laminating resin.
