There's a 6 second difference in the base rating - 102 vs 96. Not sure about any class restrictions regarding the deep keel in one design racing. I did glance through the class rules (on the 99 class website) when I was considering them but didn't find anything. Note there's also the difference between the aluminum mast and the carbon fiber mast. After a few years of production the factory standardized on the shoal keel and carbon fiber mast version and offered early owners with the deep keel and/or aluminum mast changeouts at bargain prices. An attempt to encourage one design racing.
