Re: Full or fin keel?


If you'd really like to dig into the physics of sailboat design, I'd recommend C A Marchaj's 'Sailing Theory and Practice.' The designs have changed, although not as much as some think -- you can see the same sort of hull design popular today in the 'skimming dishes' and 'sandbaggers' of a century ago. In any event the designs may change but the physics does not.
