SWING KEELS GOOD or BAD?

Was looking at Boats for Sale and ran across a 25' O'Day with a 2'10" draft. Owner said it was great for shallows...etc. but then made the comment it had a center board, '... no swing keel to mess with,' implying it's a bad thing?

So, if one is in shallow waters is a swing keel a good thing or a bad thing?

Pro's? Con's?
