I agree, if I have learned one thing from my time on this forum is that no one can choose for me, and that just about every variation; be it rig, keel, hull style etc. is right for some circumstances, and disasterous for another.
When I ask opinions I am always happiest when responses include context; and that is what I have enjoyed most about everyone here. (with very few exceptions)
Until I have the opportunity to try these variations for myself; I will endeavor to learn whatever is possible from the personal experiences of others.
Thank you all for very eriudite replys.
