Jon:
You got it. It is a THUNDERHEAD aft cockpit but mine has access to the aft cabin and as I recall did not.

My problem with most cruisng boat wing keels is that you can't fix a low aspect ratio stubby keel with low aspect ratio stubby wings. For efficient foils on a sailing vessel you need high aspect ratio foils. There is no substitute for draft. On the PSC 60'er we ran numerous VPP runs to evaluate the benefits of various drafts before deciding on the final keel. I did not guess.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
