Hi videorov - you might have to be more specific to get some useful answers, like are you limiting yourself to the Carib for cruising? Do you intend to leave the boat in the Carib or transit back and forth to US east coast
? Dry storage
for a good price
? In the Carib, during storm season? What do you consider "good"?
How many people?
It stands to reason that dagger boards
are a lot more prone to getting stuck than a keel
So yea, I guess you'd have to conclude that they can get stuck. Mine haven't. Well made boards and trunks that are properly cared for should not get stuck. As to best - boards or keels - both have pros and cons and this comes down to the owner's preferences, budget
, etc. No one can tell you what's best for you.
You will not likely find too many kick up rudders on cruising boats much larger than the Gemini
. More likely on a tri.
