One of the guys in the Seattle, Northwest RC Shipmodelers, used carved pink/blue insualtion foam to build up the "coal/gravel" load. Then covered the foam in "Lizard Litter" from the pet store. I think he used epoxy to cement the lizard litter in place.
Then the barge is ballasted with lead to bring it down to the heavy waterline.
