Catalina 22 sailors!

Which one of these is an accurate picture of a 1988-89 Catalina 22 fixed keel?

The top photo is a swing keel with the keel raised. The bottom is a wing keel (fixed) with a draft of 2-1/2'. There is also a "fin keel" version that is deeper draft of about 4'.

Is there any way to tell which version of the fixed keel you have from the top side ..? Any tell tale signs ?

The wing keel has a horizontal "wing" at the bottom (almost hidden in your photo). The fin keel is about twice as tall as the wing. You'll know it when you see one.

If they are in the water, it would be hard to tell the difference. On a trailer, it is VERY noticable since the boat sits at least 2' higher at deck level.

Well the keel is underwater right now so I was hoping I could get to the 'bottom" of this without taking a frosty dip

The swing keel has a crank to raise and lower the swing keel, just inside the companion way door. And a jamb bolt under the forward setee.

Well I know it isnt a swing keel, the question is- which kind of fixed keel is it...
