Re: Full or fin keel?

Hi CapnBill,

Was the fin keel that you sailed a new design or the older style that most of us are use to? Remember the new designs are totally different in rudder, hull, and fin makeup. But I have seen that problem in the fin keels of the 70's 80's 90's and early 00's. Those boats of that era were hard to sail in confused seas and I would have taken some form of a full keel any day over fin. But times have changed and boat design is moving on and I think to a better place.
