Re: Full or Shoal Keel on New Oyster 575?

Oh, I'm a simple man.
Shoal draft Oyster? Deep draft Oyster?
Who am I to quibble with details?
It's an Oyster.

But I get a great satisfaction of making a boat go to it's supreme potential. If a boat has a birth defect that is crippling it's performance I am not happy. Not happy when I am sailing. Maybe I'm happy when I'm on the hook and the little drinks are coming out with little umbrellas in them. I like foix gras.

Re: Full or Shoal Keel on New Oyster 575?

I have also ordered a new 575 - delivery next summer My strong advice: Stay with the standard keel if not absolutely required from you planned cruising ground. Shoal keel will have significant negative impact on sailing performance and boat behaviour. In the Med and the Caribbean draft is normally not a problem. Around the BVI, you have to take care when approaching Anegada, all other places draft is not an issue.

Chione,

Thanks for the post - lucky you for taking delivery next summer. We're hull 28 (608 days to go) so now the waiting game. I've come to the same conclusion after talking to sailing friends far and wide. The few places we may have to give up (i.e. the Bahamas) seem to be outweighed by performance characteristics of a full keel.

Thanks again and have a great weekend.

Re: Full or Shoal Keel on New Oyster 575?

I would love to stay in communication, share specs etc. I'm new on SailNet - is there a way make communications private, or exchange email addresses?

Two new Oysters?! Life's just not fair.

You'll need 10 posts before private messages will work, I believe. However, why not let us live vicariously through you. We would love to hear how the build progresses. Best to you both.

For those without the 10 posts, just start making a post 6, then do a post 7, 8 9 10, and voila, you have your correct posts to get PMs etc.
