John—

I'd point out that CE Ryder actually built the boats for Portsmouth Yachts, at least in the USA. Then again, CE Ryder built boats for several different manufacturers, as well as selling boats under their own name. IIRC, they offered several different keel designs.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
