Re: Whats up with my keel?

For anyone interested: upon further investigation (mainly communication with a previous owner I tracked down from 20 years ago!) I have learned that my '68 G26 was a center board version that was sealed up (over 20 years ago). I have no intention of attempting to reappropriate the CB as I can imagine it a massive undertaking. I've also been reassured by other sailors that a 3' draft for a 26 footer isn't bad, and in fact sufficient for my planned coastal cruising. thought it'd post the outcome of this inquiry and see what some of you think about keel requirements in relation to boat size. Again, thanks for the help and replies. You were spot on sloopjonb, mikeoreilly, miatapaul and Calebd. So is ritchard, fences beware.

Well, this is what happens when someone doen't learn about a boat before buying it. If you didn't need the swing keel or centerboard (they are different) the builder would not have designed one for it.
