I've got to admit she is a pretty boat. You might think about getting rid of that thing on the bottom and turning her into a real cruiser.

She is sailed all year round. We have no snow and ice in Portugal (only the North, and sometimes its on a Thursday afternoon).

So she' allways wet. The rudder needs a change in the bearings, that's all. Nothing serious. She will return in December on my birthday!!!

With Giu's navigation skillz... he needed to make sure the keel could support a grounding at high speeds.

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.

You wish...

I can navigate better with both eyes closed, than you can with both eyes open and a GPS in your pocket....that's why I amnot affraid of deep keels.

And I have put my boat, in places that regularly other lower draft boats don't even dream of going...want proof?

Alex, Thank you.
I expected there was a good reason for not supporting the keel.
This was the part I did not know about your cradle:
" . . .that cradle was made so that the supports are underneath the forward bulkhead, and rear bulkheads area . . ."
Good design thought to the last detail - as everything on your boat.

I know that the keel is not normally supported in the water (we try to avoid bottom) and the forces while sailing are much bigger (specially when sailed or raced hard in waves . . .) then just sitting still.

Your boat have many similarities with there ones:

Tomaz,

Altough I would love to have an RC44, the fact that I needed the inside comodities forthe family did not allow me to have a 100% race boat. So I had to be able to get a decent racer with a decent inside. Besides I would be the only one with an RC44 in Portugal, racing alone eheheeh. Its a OD

My boat is closer to these:

Swan 45

Dehler 44

GrandSoleil

Similar Keel structure
