Rippy - regarding the keel not fully extended, this is pretty typical from the post I have read on locking the keel in place. The trunk allows the keel to pivot further than it needs to be whether it was designed that way or not I don't know. I speculate that it was otherwise if the keel winch let go and the keel dropped uncontrollably there would probably be a giant whole in the hull. I know dropping the keel like that can still cause damage...I'll try to post pics again soon! Sounds like you don't have any trouble finding the wind!
