Re: Full or Shoal Keel on New Oyster 575?
I have also ordered a new 575 - delivery next summer
My strong advice: Stay with the standard keel if not absolutely required from you planned cruising ground. Shoal keel will have significant negative impact on sailing performance and boat behaviour. In the Med and the Caribbean draft is normally not a problem. Around the BVI, you have to take care when approaching Anegada, all other places draft is not an issue.
