Re: Full or fin keel?


By "lighter on the helm", they mean that it needs less input at the helm to change course. They are not talking about sail balance.

I would be very interested to see that Benetau of yours hold its course on a broad reach.

Hands off with no autopilot?

My long keeler won't.

That Benetau must be quite a ship to hold a broad reach hands-off.
