Close Quarter Manoeuvring - Shoal or Deep Keel
Can anyone share their opinion/experience with close quarter manoeuvring with a shoal keel vs. deep keel.
I've noticed several of the new production boats at our club with short drafts 4-5 feet seem more skittish in moderate winds, and more prone to drift almost like a powerboat.
I'm sure the windage of these boats is a factor but wonder how much the keel has to do with it.
