When I sit down with Mr Perry or another designer to have my ultimate cruising boat designed (yah, right!) I would ask for a conservative (longish) fin keel configuration. I think it is reasonable compromise.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
