Whatever works for you!

Fishing weights,
Lead shot.
Lead roof sheets
Diver weight belts
Extra batteries
Water tanks/jugs
Nuts and bolts

On larger boats I melt lead into ingots for easy positioning using a simple 2x4 mold.
A friend gets lead shot diver weights made, looks like bean bags.

Hello all new to this forum.
I am building a billing’s Bankert rc tugboat and am wondering what other boat builders are using for ballast in there models.

Cheers, Michael
