Re: Modern design + full keel?

I might be sticking my neck out but when you said smaller cockpits it made me wonder... Modern boats have huge cockpits but also have a scoop transom so taking green water isn't an issue. The reason I bring this up is tat it appears you are reading far too much and not sailing enough. I would suggest getting out and sailing both designs as often as possible it could save you thousands in the end. An aside, if your boat is being pooped you are doing something very wrong, in the real world this is a very small concern to a skilled sailor. One of the big problems with forums and the internet is that rather than get out and learn what we like we read way too much about it and start to form opinions about things we know nothing about. This is meant to be positive btw
