Yes, a full keel heavy boat will be more comfortable than a light flat bottom fin keel boat. But not all fin keel boats are flat bottom, there are many moderate displacement fin keel boats, with the rudders usually on skeg and far aft where they are more effective than angled down farther forward at the end of the keel.
