Re: Full or fin keel?

This Is Great!

All the smart people are posting info on full and fin keels in this thread.

Perhaps they are all still subscribed and could expand their info. I looked around a whole bunch but could not afford a full keel. I have yet to sail my boat because it is still being painted. I was wondering what to expect from what i believe are called 3/4 keel like the one on my boat? Is there a positive side to a keel like mine?

Documentation says my draft is 5'6"
36' LOA Vessel weighing 16,500lbs with a beam of 12'4"

I am hull #1 of 2 i believe. Created by Squadron Yachts of Bristol RI in 1981 in case anyone was curious where i got a boat they hadn't seen before.
