Re: Full or fin keel?

would note boat like Hannah's with dagger boards aft are said to track wonderfully in following sea. My new boat given hull shape aft and rudder design also is known to track and surf without issue. Properly designed bulbed fins and modern centerboards with daggerboards seem to have this issue solved. Ability to point and made good days run in light/moderate air remain failings of most full keeled boats. Keeping boat comfortable at or beyond hull speed remain favorable attributes of outbound,boreal and modern crop of euro boats.
