.... Sorry if you could not take the criticism, I will go easier on you when I see your posts ya baby. Three out of four of my ex-wifes agree with you that I am ill. One of them even had a degree in psyche. In fact she is the one that nicknamed me pigslo about 25 years ago.
.... I have a good freind with a Catalina 36 wing keel and he loves it. I sail a shallow draft centerboard that will just about go upwind. Many boats, many budgets, many keels, that all do different things under water and in mud.

I would rather not have a large hole in the bottom of my boat.

There have been several dramatic failures of keels similar to IMS's keel, and I just wanted to point out that for a cruising sailor it doesn't make much sense to have such a keel. Also, it must get quite expensive hauling and re-doing the keel every few months... me, I'd rather spend the money on something else. Also, the limited underwater lateral plane of the keel will mean that if the boat stops moving it will slip to leeward very quickly, as the keel IMS has depends on water moving past it to generate lift to windward... without lift...he's gonna blow down pretty fast.

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.
