Yep.. keep looking. If you want a faster boat, and the new one you buy is crippled with a shoal keel, it will drive you crazy.. You will always wonder how fast you will be going with a deep keel.

I don't think you will be happy.

A boat is an expensive toy. It's infinitely more expensive if it's not the toy you want.
