Re: Converting swing board trailer to wing keel trailer?

I hope you feel well exercised after jumping to so many conclusions. Without an image of the boat and keel, you can't make these assertions in any reasonably scientific way.

The trim is going to be a problem. She won't point, the bows going to blow around when maneuvering, the pivot points going to be altered, she's going to be too heavy for her designed sail area, she's not going to heave too and she's going to ship waves into the cockpit when anchored.

I'm not trying to be cute. This boat does not sound like a good boat to learn on.
