Re: Full or fin keel?

Wolf your boat is a magnificant design. No one in their right mind would say otherwise. Both a gas operated semi auto 30.06 and a muzzleloader bring down deer. To an collector/hunter both have appeal. The deer is just as dead so he feels the same about both as well. Still, the physics of the ocean and weather remain the same and folks will always strive to find a better solution to deal with it. You are right as regards many production boats but realize they are aimed at a different segment of the boating public then your boat is and was when it was constructed. Compare apples to apples and for the same segment you refer to there are boats still being made which incorporate the genius of subsequent generations. Some are the equal to your vessel and the audience who buys them probably know what a gem you own.
