    Beakus, what with the difficulty in finding cheap lead anymore, I've decided to make a change from using 2# lead cannonballs to using concrete weights that someone on the BOC described making. The process involved cutting off the neck of a 16-20oz soda jug, putting the desired weight of concrete into the bottom of the jug, and inserting a piece of coathanger wire for something to tie onto. After the concrete sets, trim off the top of the soda jug, leaving about 1/2" sticking up above the concrete (not sure that's exactly the right amount, but it's pretty close). Use a propane torch to heat the excess, causing it to shrink down around the top edge of the concrete, forming a nice protective coating. No sharp corners/edges to damage your boat or equipment.
