US Yach 25 foot 1983

I own one of these but have yet to put it in the water. The previous owner made mention that he rarely put the drop keel down when sailing. Anyone sail or own one of these and your thoughts on sailing with the drop keel up.

Experiment with the drop keel, especially with the wind forward of the beam, see which works best.
