I think the quote that kicked this thread off belongs to me. Swing keels scare me because it just seems like a lot of weight to be swinging back and forth. Perhaps that fear is unfounded, but in the research I have done it seems a thorough inspection is necessary every year, especially when in salt water. It just seems like one more thing to worry about. However, the reduced draft is handy.
