Re: shoal draft keel vs regular keel
If Lake Simcoe is generally pretty deep, as I believe it is, then unless you plan to gunkhole up its tributaries or want to store your boat on a trailer, the regular/deep fin is probably the way to go. Better overall performance, pointing ability, and righting moment.
OTOH if the particular boat at which you are looking is well-maintained, and otherwise ticks your boxes, then go for it. Especially if you don't plan on racing it regularly. Let your gut make the final decision. Good luck!
