What is the difference between a coastal crusier and a bay b

Jeff: you have seen a picture of TPIII''s keeel and daggerboard. On a race around Catalina way back when we had the Dagger board down all the way. Hit a rock which we went over after the dagger board bore the boats entire weight and impact. We hauled as soon as we got back to Long Beach Marina. We drove the board aft 8" in the keel. Had to cut a section out to remove the board. Repaired the cut out section, put the board back in and 30 years later its still going strong. Bye the way the keel has 3200# of lead inside. The box mwmber was built as part of the hull shape the lead was then glassed in a water tank,125gal built on top of it. No Problmo!!
