Re: Full Keel

I've got a Rafiki 37 and thus far have been happy. She's very similar to the Pacific Seacraft 37 and the Tayana 37. All came out at the same time in the mid 70s and all are full keel with about 13 tons of displacement--Seacraft is a bit lighter. We're in the bay area, so rarely have light winds, but when there's wind in the sails she moves smoothly, even in the lighter wind. I'm real pleased at how well she points to weather, and for rough water, I've never had a boat that was quite so solid. We've only had her since January, but we're on the bay at least once a week. Good luck, Dave.
