Re: Full or fin keel?
I think that it is a mistake to think that the DNA of Viking longboats are not a part of modern yacht design. Even though larger working water craft and warships derived from Mediterranean trading vessels and evolved to better use cannons, the basic design concepts pioneered by longboats formed the conceptual basis for smaller working watercraft throughout the rim of the North Sea and was thought to be the inspiration for American whaleboat, and English canoe yawls.
