Keel designs

Not too long ago, here on the forum, I happened across an article in keel designs that mentioned adding a 15 degree wedge to the front of fin keels to help with reducing resistance in the corner where the keel meets the hull.

I know I saved it some where but I can't seem to find it again. I work and play from around 5 different computers and it gets confusing after awhile.

Does anyone remember the article? I've gone through the archives and still can't seem to find it.


HELP!

Thanks Gord

The boatbuilder page looks simular to the one I'm seeking. So it must be in their archives somewhere. I do remember having to skip over ad pages. I'll log on and dwell deeper into their frame work...................._/)
