I do know this.
Well, FWIW, my old full-keeler goes in reverse under power just fine.. In fact, given the old girl's tendency to be blown sideways whilst coming into the marina at crawling speed, I find reverse allows me far more control than going forward.

Maybe you're doing something wrong?

Well said. There are many different ways to enjoy sailing . There are no wrong ways.

Tom: I see now that it is a Rosinante. But in that first photo it looks twice as long and half as beamy. Must be the lens.

Good eye. Wide angle 10mm. It's a handy lens at the docks, especially for boats like this 22Square meter. For those that hate long overhangs, here's a teeth grinder.

How could anyone hate those overhangs? That is beautiful and simply a product of it's rule. That rule produced some stunning boats.

Re: Full Keel

Exactly! There is little that will make a boat as beautiful as long overhangs - performance be damned.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Full Keel

I know it comes dangerously close to highjacking my own thread, but does anyone have any real-world (as opposed to anacdotal) experience they would be willing to share regarding the durability (over time as well as under stress) of the various rudder designs?

What I want to hear are comments like, "we crossed the Atlantic with a spade rudder and never had a lick of trouble" or "ours broke off the stern in a mild five foot following swell".

Re: Full Keel

Every boat I've owned has had a spade, on shafts or on pintles & gudgeons - I've never had a lick of trouble with any of them.

The boats I've sailed with attached rudders were all much harder to steer than the spades. I've never sailed a boat with a skeg hung rudder.

I do know that I prefer a tiller and I absolutely HATE hydraulic steering - lifeless & insensitive as well as prone to leaks. I can't imagine why anyone would install it if they had ANY other option.

A spade with a tiller is stone axe technology - just what you want for steering a boat IMHO.

Question Re: Full Keel

any cruising boat that has hull that is laid up glass WITHOUT a core material like balsa core or similar is a real safe start in a search .many early hulls before 1973 were made of different glass than those later.early were polyester &much harder & stronger ....also most polyester hulls do not get the pox...better known as blisters...almost any hull by c&c,hughes_canada..hinterholler,belleville marine made before 1973 should be considered.manufacturers changed because of cost but mostly because of molds catching fire..very flamable materiels before they harden...most people are not aware of these changes...but smart buyer s in the know will take this into consideration..
