Re: Full or Shoal Keel on New Oyster 575?

Zanchin, do you notice a significant cruising advantage of the performance keel under sail? You note a couple of basic advantages of the shoal keels around shore, where you have trouble getting to the travel lift or into popular anchorages. In my way of thinking, cruisers spend more time around shore than sailing. (Unless one sails more than 12 hrs a day, everyday )

Everyone should love their boat and have it the way they like it. I'm not suggesting there is a right and wrong.

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