There is your clear answer. For a cruiser, the performance drop just isn't all that noticeable. If you're cruising, its much nicer to have more anchorage options and/or margin. We have the shoal keel at 6.5ft. No disappointment at all.

A new Oyster?....... I hate you.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
