This is how I feel about keel boats, can't stand the things. Owned keel boats until I was about 40, partially because up until that point I had never sailed a decent multihull and didn't realise what I was missing. Another thing is small multis sail well enough that they don't need motors. Another major head ache dispensed with.I thought about keels. Not keen about them unless I decide to cruise. Not practical, lots of headaches, needs a dock and etc... If I trailer, then setting up needs a second hand - V6 trucks and such. Forget it. Okay, there are very exciting small keelboats, but then again... I have to be solo doing this.
