performance of sailing boats having a Schelling keel
Thanks, you are, as almost always, right. I meant a Scheel keel, I just misunderstood the name. I heard that Mr. Scheel is an American naval designer. You mentioned all the advantages of this keel. However if it has so many advantages why only very few boat designs include this keel? Is it too expensive? What about drifting when the boat is sailing close haul? So far I have only seen (here in Europe) a Moody 38, which is no longer in production, with this keel.
