I was thinking more along the lines of daggerboards/keels, but lots of stuff on boats could be improved with a little less rigidity.

Likely, you need controlled system to get benefit of elasticity. Natural effect of elasticity may be good.... or bad ! Looks like morphing wings have been tested since a long time to twist the wings, using mechanical control devices.

When I saw the trim tabs on the plane I thought that if I could control the back and front edge of my centerboard, I think I would have less drag and point higher.
