Re: Catalina wing keel or fin keel?

As I understand it the older Catalina 27's come in 4 varieties: std rig, shoal draft, shoal draft & tall rig and tall rig w/slightly deeper keel. I'm not sure that the shallow draft models are wing keeled models but they might be.
You can look up the different types here:

For the Pacific coast of the US you should have no need for a boat with a smaller keel from what I hear.
