Re: Another interesting discovery, at least to me.

I'd never heard the term 'swing keel' before I started reading these forums. Is a 'swing keel' just a modern term for a centerboard or are there actually boats that have retractable keels that come up like centerboards?
I know of some cruising boats (mostly French alloy hard chine boats) that have the whole keel pull up into the hull, but they do not 'swing', they retract vertically.
