Stack of steel (cast iron) plates

Any ideas on reason for a stack of cast iron steel plates that appear to be partially glassed into the starboard lazarette ?
A rough guess would be ballast. Any rationale?

I had a chunk of railroad rail glassed in for trim.

Ballast to get the boat in trim.

If they were far outboard they could be for roll rate reduction.
