Decription of hull/keel types

Can someone point me in the direction of a pictorial representation of different hull/keel types (ie "shoal keel", "fin keel", "full keel", etc.)?

Thanks!

A full keel boat looks like:

A fin keel boat looks like:

There is no such thing as a shoal keel. A shoal keel is just a description used to describe boats of fairly shallow draft, and can be full or fin keeled.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Jeff, those are not even sailboats... they do not have a mast. And where are the barnacles? I see NOOOO prop.

Honestly, Jeff, if you are going to try and maintain your reputation as a knowledgeable yachtsman, you should really study up more.

Scratch you off the 'creative artist' in my book. Not even in color.

Jeff- Are you sure that F is a bulb keel, it looks more like a wing keel.

SD,

'F' is a Sea Ray, and they do not have keels. What's the matter with you? Did you even take the time to look at his drawings?

Now you, on the other hand, I can tell you really spent some time with the old pencil putting that together. I would have been nicer in color though.

but wait, that's not all

There's another keel design that only just came on the market about twenty years ago so maybe that's why it wasn't mentioned by some of the other posters.

This new fangled thing is called a wing. It's also seen in combination with the bulb.

Basically a boat with a very heavily weighted centerboard.
