Re: shoal draft keel vs regular keel

I agree if we are talking about the same boat in the two configurations but it is not only a better pointing ability but also probably more 5º of leeway at least with some wind. The boat will also track better at high angles of heel and will be more forgiving in what regards rounding up.
