Best Hull type?

Hmmm... I''ve extensively discussed various hull options with some experienced folks, and I''m likely to go with the idea of a traditional "fin" type hull in the 30ft range.

I, personally, liked the looks of a full-keeled hull, but am told, (and common sense makes me inclined to agree) that a full-keeled hull would be both harder to maneuver and would roll front to back at bit more than a finned hull.

A couple other notes: I''ve already got a 14ft sailfish and "some" experience using it. I''ve got a 12 ft dinghy under construction currently. The 30ft boat is going to be made by me, next spring/summer.
