I have one of these, mine has a shallow shoal keel and a regular mast, not stepped or fractional...is that what the FR stands for?

Interesting. I had a Kells 23 several years ago but it was a flat bottom boat with a retractable centerboard no keel. The centerboard was about 5'' long and about 10-12 inches wide. It was a masthead rig deck mounted not keel mounted.

My guess would be Kelly 23MH (Masthead rig) and Kelly 23FR (fractional rig)

I also owned a Kells 23 several years ago, swing keel and deck stepped mast. Had a lot of fun with it, but it would not point at all. If I wanted to point any closer then 100o to the wind had to turn on the motor
