Re: Full or Shoal Keel on New Oyster 575?
Is the PHRF on the particular boat in question actually different by 20-30 seconds per mile between the shoal and deep keel? If so, I get it. That would be a lot more than I expected. On my boat, I find it hard to image it would be the case, but I could be wrong.
However, I don't think cruisers do very many 2000 mile legs, with 50 to maybe 100 mile days being most common.
I guess the OPs answer will somewhat depend on what they mean by cruising.
