And you're still missing out on multihulls... Catamarans—which have two hulls, and Trimarans—which have three..

This is a full-keel sailboat:

BTW, an excellent book for learning a lot about sailing and boats is David Seidman's The Complete Sailor

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
