Well I will speak in defence of long keels. I've got one, and like it... a Union Polaris 36. It took me home to Scotland, and did well in the bigger seas.

It's each man to his own, really.

I like the idea of the keel being cast into the glass fibre.... no keel bolts, and with reduced keel stresses.... no deep fin stuff for me.

Long keels are slower, particularily in light airs, but they have their better moments in the bigger seas.

I will disagree with you there Jeff. The length does matter (just like the depth of a keel does matter). It's together with a whole bunch of other factors, but the keel length does matter, and its depth.
