Re: Full Keel

I know it comes dangerously close to highjacking my own thread, but does anyone have any real-world (as opposed to anacdotal) experience they would be willing to share regarding the durability (over time as well as under stress) of the various rudder designs?

What I want to hear are comments like, "we crossed the Atlantic with a spade rudder and never had a lick of trouble" or "ours broke off the stern in a mild five foot following swell".
