What type of Keel do you prefer....

With all of the different types of keels available, I'm curious to know which are the most popular amongst all of you sailors out there...

One that stays attached, or at least within the boat... Apparently I prefer NO keel, but rather a Lifting weighted daggerboard.

Deep fin

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Hmmm.........sqeeeeeeeek......oops, who cut the cheese?!?!?!?!???

Honestly, being as there is NOT a what size boat etc. I will say ALL have plus and minus's. "It Depends" is probably the correct answer.
