The bottom line is a keel stepped mast with no shrouds still stands up. It starts out stronger before anything else is added. As for the water in the bilge, who cares. I prefer Keel stepped but would take either id I liked the boat.


There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV, iii, 217
