Re: Another Excalibur 26

Thank you! You are the one doing all the work and sharing great information, I'm just enjoying reading about the boat - never having seen one. If I see one I'll take photos for you.

Are there lobster or crab pots in your area? I wonder how the almost plumb leading edge of the keel does going through those areas. Here in Maine it's common to see lobster pots looking like - I don't know - popcorn spilled on the kitchen floor. They represent a lot of work and investment for the fishermen, I hate the idea of snagging one when out just for recreation.

I like the way the keel is much deeper than the rudder, having seen rudders bent and locked from hitting ledge.
