I was wondering wich are the difference of between the "ordinary" thin keel
and this one what is on the same boat ( a 42 ft) weight .
As far as i know:
(30 inch less or half meter)
-I GUESS, less bolt that keep the keel
in place, so more stressed area
-Heavier (3.100 kg vs 2.700kg, 800lbs about of difference )on a boat total of light displacement
: 9.000 kg (18.000 lbs)
-less sailing ability (especially at 90* wind
angle), less heading capcity on reaching
I don't know region
- less drag due less wetted surface?
- more drag due the vortex from the first "fin keel" that goes on to the second?
as flatter bulb...so more resistence again..
-in case of unwanted grounding maybe the flatter bulb help ? (shaft drive transmission)
Any idea or advice?
