Re: Converting swing board trailer to wing keel trailer?

I wonder if all that extra weight on the keel could cause problems with the rig. When too much wind hits the rig, boats are supposed to heel. It's like a pressure relief valve for your rig.

Did you get a good look at the chain plates and standing rigging when you were at the boat?
