Jeff - idle curiosity - you didn't mention twin keels. I remember seeing these in the UK, where in areas with a large tidal range and shallow water you could see many smaller boats standing up high and dry, sitting happily on their twin keels, at low tide. I read somewhere that these were becoming more popular in the US also. Any opinions? Seems to me like potential for a lot of drag; perhaps stiffer; clearly more stable at on the hard!!
