Re: Full or fin keel?

So there; see what I meant when I said "if you can decide in your own head" full vs fin keels?
There really is now way to simplify this decision but to think hard about the kind of sailing you are going to do and where you are likely to do it and then mentally start building the boat of your dreams. Then comes the hard part of finding that boat without having to commission a naval architect.
And then you come to uderstand that saying "every boat is a compromise."
I think very very few people ever got their last boat with their first boat. So don't kill yourself trying to find that perfect boat right out of the box.
Have fun with this journey.
