Re: Full or fin keel?

If you're a weekend sailor with a couple weeks vacation on the boat in the summer, (90% of us) then a well designed (S&S for example) fin keeled boat is far better. Faster, more maneuverable, less wetted surface, etc. Have had the boat 30 years, been off shore, as well--handles great.
