Full Keel vs. Wing Keel small boats

Trying to decide what type boat to buy. From what I understand Full Keels are safer in the water but slower sailing. If true , how big of a difference is there.
Also, will an outboard on a 26-28 footer be as powerful as an inboard in harsh weather conditions. Plans are to sail a small lake in kentucky during the summer and move it to the coast in the winter months, with some trips to the bahamas.
