Re: US Navy Veteran_New to Sailboats_Need your Honest Knowledge and Experience_Thanks
Not to start a keel type discussion - not quite as much fun as guns or anchors of course, but there are lots of suitable boats that are not full-keelers. As I suggested before, you are a long way away from the boat choosing part of the exercise.
Finished the circumnavigation in early February in Grenada. Have to work on a book project for the next several months so the boat will be waiting for next year.
