Wing Keel- pros and cons

Jeff has given you a good picture. If your waters allow a 5'' fin keel, that leaves you a lot of choices. The performance of a fin keel is better. (Point higher, etc) If you are going to be in very thin water, maybe a wing would be the choice. I am not a fin of a Scheel keel. (only experience is a Tartan 33, nice boat, but does not point as high as it should)

Good luck.
Matt
