Re: Full or fin keel?

Don't see anything about CFD Paulo. How are you certain CFD was used? Can you provide a CFD study that has been published? I'd like to see that for my own education. I wouldn't make the automatic assumption that CFD is being used for every new keel you see from a major design office.

I understand the theory behind the tandem keel. As I said it is far from a new keel geometry. I don't doubt that it works, to some degree. But the real appeal may be more for marketing. Seems like you bought it.
