real keel holyfield

In the Swedish and Finnish archipelagos, a sailing yacht has a more than 50-70% risk of accidentally hitting rocks at cruising speeds at least one time during it’s life. After the modern fin keels (bolted to a flat bottom) have become the norm, the costs and the difficulties to repair have sky-rocketed. The Linjett 43 attempt to construct a fin keel capable of surviving such mishaps should absolutely not be joked about but rather be applauded. – Anarchist Magnus.
