Re: Full or fin keel?
I'm really enjoying the discussion here and I was wondering if someone with the requisit knowledge can speak to the S&S designed Yankee Dolphin and the Dolphin S&S designed Dolphin with fin keel for the Austrailian market. Keels aside the vessels are identical, blue water capable and trailerable.
It is my understanding based on the wonderful Dolphin websight that both are exceptional cruisers but it's hard to say which is the better perfoming vessel. I would be inclined to think that the Aussie version is but then again the US version was campaigned successfully for many years in the MORC which may explain the benefits of the centerboard in the full keel design.
