Re: Converting swing board trailer to wing keel trailer?

If I remember correctly, many of the S2 models came from the factory with swing keel/shoal keel/fin keel options. And for a time, the factory sold keel conversions for converting swing to shoal/fin.

So dismissing this S2 keel conversion out of hand is jumping to conclusions.

Even if this wasn't an official conversion, consider how much the center of effort, floatation and gravity changes on a swing keel in various states of "swing". Any after market conversion that is placed in the swing keel box area will likely be just fine in comparison.
