Re: Full or fin keel?

Reserve buoyancy is a function of displacement...not shape.

It manifests itself...not only fore and aft, but athwart-ships as well. It makes a sailing ship "stiffer"...able to carry more...

Re: Full or fin keel?

Also,

Wide sections, either fore,or aft, preferably both...make for reserve bouyancy. This is a good thing...the compromise being wetted surface and thus speed.
