But that's not how you attach a high-aspect, bulbed keel. This is how you attach a keel.

Is this picture relevant to the boat that sunk at all??? I sure do like this amazing structure. In wooden boat construction you would see this type of construction, those "beams" in a wooden boat would are called floors not to be confused with a floor, as you some of you may know a floor in a boat is called a sole.
