Many centerboards such as our C&C 35 MKIII have no issues with noise and in fact give us geater flexibility than the fixed keel models. For instance our centerboard drops down to over 6 feet giving us an advantage over fixed shoal keel C&C 35's in terms of stability and can be pulled up to 4'6 to allow us to go up many of the smaller tributaries of the Chesapeake.

As long as you take care of the pivioting mechanism and maintain it as SD has indicated a k/c can give you the best of all worlds.

The only disadvantage I have found is a shallower bilge.
