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 5 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.
