Twin Keel vs Bulb Keel
I own a twin keel that I keep on a trailer for out on the lakes or around the Sound. Performance wise there are no advantages just disadvantages. Before the wind or a broad reach you will you get your best COG. On a close haul you''ll loose so much ground that you''ll be tacking excessively. Unless your keels are as deep as a fin. Then you’re dragging too much hull.
I do like mine for anchoring or close to shore adventures. She''ll sit right on the beach in a low tide.
