Do you have any use or need for a bilge keel?

Re: Moody 27 Bilge keel

There are many fin M27s about.

When you say passage making, what are you thinking of doing?

Bilge keels do not go to windward as well as other keels. Bilge keels are made for tidal waters where you can dry out.

The M27 is half the weight of my M31, so whilst you could sail offshore the space and weight capacity of carrying stuff, food and water will be much lower.

Friends have a M27 fin version. Nice small yacht for costal sailing, turns on a sixpence (dime) and feels like a large dinghy. Wouldn't be my choice for offshore.

The rudder is a spade, bolted onto the transom like a dinghy btw.
