Sounds like you fit the demographic for a deep draft fin. Plus, unless you gunkhole in the North Channel or Door County/Green Bay, the shoal draft isn't all that useful for most Great Lakes/Lake Michigan sailing (assuming that's where you spend your time).

If you're coming from the T34C, I'll bet the shoal draft Bene points better.
