Re: Full or fin keel?

Once the wind speed gets to the point where comfort would be an issue my boat is doing hull speed (9kts I am doing hull speed,6.5kt, under main and working jib). So unless you are talking about racing fin keels that can plane, a fin keel would not be any faster. 30' at 8ton it is smooth in nasty seas
