Shoal Keel and blue water?

There are a few things that make the differance. A shoal keel will not point up as well as a fin or full. The other is you''ll loose ground to the lee on a reach or close haul. And depending on the ballast she''ll heal over a bit more in a heavy breese. But great for coastal waters. More choice in anchorages and passages.
