I believe they were angled downward. Probably one of the better shoal draft designs for pure sailing. (Yes, I know, 12’s were not shoal draft boats but its the design). As far as another aspects, maybe not so much, good for gathering weeds and other items found close to the surface…Oh for the days when weeds were short, and the oceans were clean.That's actually pretty close to what I remember of Australia II's keel; I think her wings were angled slightly forward.
