Re: Why a ketch?

sailed all three and i find mine with full keel and sail plan make her MUCH easier to steer--MUCH less weather helm and DOES track better than any sloop or cutter i have sailed in 50+ yrs
Ya-but, as Bob will probably point out in a second, not all ketches have full keels. Any manner of steering and helm could result depending on underbody and rig design.
