Re: Winged keel

I've got wing-keel. Grounded twice, now calls it mantaray-keel. If i buy a new boat, i'll go for fin keel. In hindsight, difference between wing and fin keels are only 12-18". Not going to make much difference in the shallow water i sail in.
IMHO deeper fin keel points better than shorter wing-keel.
