Re: Converting swing board trailer to wing keel trailer?

It is not a full keel, it stops several feet short of the stern. Wish I could post a picture with my laptop. Then we could make more insightful judgements.

My business name is water plus my name. Not completely new to water movement. Starting to appreciate your effort though.

Note any changes in the way your water bottles reacts to the wind from the fan.

Then tell me I don't understand the principles of boat trim.
