Re: Full or fin keel?

"I believe they can design them in an effective way otherwise they would not be using them."

What a novel thought. I wonder how many design features have been tried over the years that have proven less than effective but initiated with that same optimism? The "split keel" has been around for quite a long time.

Maybe in time it will join some other "breakthrough" keels like theScheel keel, Reijo Salminen wing keel, eliptical planform keels, to name three.
