The Intrepid 9M is a fin-keel.
You are right!. The web site that I looked at had a watermark in th e background that had a full keel. I humbly stand corrected.
Looking at the sales brochure, the boat reminds me of my Sabre 28. With that said, I agree that the Sabre 28 may not be a large enough for your needs or worth the efffort of searching purchasing etc. Go for the 30. I know of one in VA that may go cheaply; no one has been on it in years. I hate to see it sit there.
