I used to have a Victory 21, a design that came in two versions; one with a bulb on the bottom of the keel, and one without. As I recall, the bulb added about 150 lbs., which was about 10% of the empty weight of the boat. The models with the bulb keel were actually preferred by most Victory owners, as they were considerable stiffer boats, but were a bit more sluggish in calmer conditions.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
