Re: Catalina wing keel or fin keel?

Good morning - - whereabouts in Montana are you sailing?? We're over in Flathead Lake.

We have a 27' Catalina, tall rig, fin keel - - LOVE it. We're fairly new, and really like the stability that the deep/heavy keel provides. It points well. We have no problems with the extra depth of the keel (here). However, this past summer, we trailered it to Florida and went to the Bahamas for two months. The extra foot (of draft) was concerning many times there. But here, pshaw, plenty of water depth.

Say "hi" if you get over this direction (Flathead Lake),
