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.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
