Catalina 28 and 30 sailing question

Hello,

Anyone by a chance sailed both the winged and finned versions of the C-28 and or C-30 boats? I understand that the fin keel boat sails better windwards. Can someone provide a more detailed comparission of these boats? How about tenderness (heeling) and ease of single handing? How about running aground? As I understand the big plow on the bottom is fairly hard to get unstuck... Is the wing keel's only advantage is the draught? Thanks for any info. Regards.

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
The draft issue is a 'where" do you sail question. If you sail in Puget Sound as I do, the is NO, NONE< Zippo etc IMHO of a wing keel, no matter how you slic the cake etc. BUT, if you sail in some of the shallower bay areas on the east coast, then "maybe" the wing/shoal keel has an advantage. But I doubt either of the above boats will be a big deal be it fin or wing even back their.
