Re: Full or fin keel?
I am talking with Quantum about doing a paper exploring the trade off between sail area and sail shaping for cruising boats (i.e. more powerful sections vs. larger sail area)....
Having recently forked out $$ for a headsail that after 4 re-cuts we can't get driving properly - that's got MY interest, Jeff!
Care to add anything else - or start a separate thread on this??
