SD, I am talking about the traditional, low aspect ration fin keel.

So fin keeled can heave-to but do they create such a protective slick that forces breaking waves to dissipate before reaching the boat ?
Somehow I feel (assume) that the slick created by a fin keel may be less powerfull and might not have the magical forces that calm the breaking waves
