Re: Why does Tanzer 22 turn faster than Morgan 22?

Looking at the underbody of both boats, it would appear that the Morgan has a partial full keel housing a centerboard, whereas the Tanzer has a fin keel. The Tanzer foil should be more hydrodynamically efficient in a turn and therefore more responsive, given that the rudder arrangements are similar.
