Re: Full or fin keel?

My previous generation by 3 or 4 Jeanneau, has 2400 to 6500 lbs of boat. With a 5.5' draft.

At the end of the day, if the boat works for your purpose, keel design and where the ballast is set at works, away you go! enjoy your boat! I'll still take my Jeanneau over an equal Catalina with a lead keel, I may heel a bit more, but I am faster in all but light winds!
