Re: Why I like a full keel

in an ideal world.. the line would be pulled taught and would slide over a full keel and behind the boat.. where as a fin keel it would slide over the keel and then slap against the bottom of the boat before hitting the screw...

sadly, we do not live in an ideal world and most lines you snag are slack
