Re: Full or fin keel?
"Suhali" was the name of Robin Knox Johnson's boat that won the first solo nonstop round the world race.
It was a heavy, old-fashioned, full-keeled, Colin Archer design that survived the race where all others were eliminated due to material failures or insanity in the case of Donald Crowhurst. It averaged 4 knots per hour - the classic 4ksb.
