Re: Full or fin keel?
Glad you are continuing to learn something from me. ... But to quote a book written 150 years ago:
A manual of Naval Architechture, 1877
"A stiff ship is... A steady ship on the contrary when exposed to the action of waves keeps nearly upright. the stiffest ships are the least steady."
I hope you start reading more recent books, you need it. XXI century sailboats boats have little in common with XIX century boats
