They do amazing things with faux floor coatings and stains these days...

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair...

Mai Tai's fix everything...

Re: Help me to understand Swingkeels

I'm partial to my boat which is a Santana 2023. I sail in the Barnegat bay and Toms River in NJ which is part of the ICW, but pretty restrictive since you can go 4 feet outside the channel and in some spots hit 3 ft of water and I sail coastal as well. It's water ballast and a swing centerboard so it only draws 2 ft with board and rudder up, and when down it draws just shy of 6 ft. Despite what people say, they're stable boats for not being fixed keel and they race them out to Catalina islands in CA. Before the wife and kids I would take off for a month at a time and has great interior space including a small galley and enclosed head for the ladies. Also has a pop top which I don't bother using.
