I think you would find that a vesel with a 7'3" will appeal only to a racer as it si too deep for general cruising use. I have lived wioth a 6'3" keel and found it to not be much of a problem, and am very happy with the perfpormance. Go with the 6'7" but no more...unless you are focused on racing.

Certified...in several regards...
