Re: 14Ft Double Keel
I am not sure 1.5 hp will push anything well. It might push the boat in perfect conditions but may struggle against a current, choppy sea or against a headwind. I don't know that I would get a twin keel boat unless I lived in a place like NE Canada or England where there is a huge tidal change and drying harbors. I was under the impression double keel boats suffer in performance, obviously not in the case of the boat Killarney-Sailor posted but in most twin keelers not performance oriented. On the other hand two short stubby keels might make trailer launching easier.
