Any comments on shoal keel vs. pure swing keel?
Yes, it has a short keel with a CB inside it.



Probably makes getting it on a trailer a bit more of an issue, but if the board is housed in a keel then the interior is more open because the cb trunk will be less of an intrusion, if at all. You'll also have some more directional stability with the board up.

One thing... if you are ever sailing with the board up, remember your rudder will be deeper than your keel.
