Re: Full or fin keel?

This is an interesting discussion, but why in the last few pages has the Island Packet become a benchmark for heavy displacement? There are a great many heavy boats I admire that sail well, but Island Packet? They are certainly heavy but have also bowed to the "cram in a lot of accommodation" theory.
