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.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
