Re: shoal keel and other types
This is a very general question. The best advice I can give you is to search on the forum for keel types and also just do a basic google search to really get into this issue.
Short answer version: There are many different keel types/shapes. Shoal refers to a shallow draft boat that is probably designed for sailing in shallower water. There are also Fin keel, Wing Keels, Full Keels, Bulb Keels, Centerboard Keels, Daggerboards, and many hybrids of all these kinds as well as others. They all have certain implications as to what type of sailing they may do, but to know what kind of sailing a boat is aimed at you must look at the complete design of the boat including rig, hull, interior, systems, keel... you get the picture.
