Re: Full or fin keel?

Paulo:
I'll have to defer to your superior knowledge in the area of yacht design and yacht design offices. I have not been at this very long. You obviosly have far more depth and bredth to your design office experience than I have. I can only hope to one day have as much knowledge of yacht design as you think you have.

Here are a couple of small projects of mine. I'd love to see some of yours.

I am in full agreement with you that swing keels are the optimal solution for shoal draft. I am very lucky in that I live where the water is very deep so shoal draft is not a concern of mine. Although I have designed one or two boats where draft was a major consideration.
