Keel Help!

Alright I'm a student designing a boat on the computer and it has to have the jest of the boat. None of the complicated scaling and measurements have to be on the design, but I was wondering if a full keel gives better stability than a fin keel. My boat is just supposed to sail to a designated location, its focus is not speed but stability since it its supposed to anchor down. Basically its supposed to be a kitchen boat so the cabin is mostly a huge kitchen that you can enjoy your time cooking more professionally. So a full keel or a fin keel? Regarding sails, it has a main sail and a jib. The dimensions are 8 feet high, not including the mast, 45 feet long, 8 feet wide, and the mast is 36 feet high. I have no clue what the hell I am doing to be honest, I just want to get this over with so please help!
