Re: Any info on RL 34 Shoal Draft keel
i would disagree, the centreboard made a huge difference ,tacking to windward.i had mine faired and then packed the top of the inside of the case with the special plastic they use on boat skids, (you do have to take care to keep some tolerance or it can jam )to stop the banging around.when i purchased c-nymph and sailed her for a year at airlie beach, she had the shoal fixed keel, which was(and robb legg will confirm, i hope)fitted with a bolt on 12 inch extension.after removing the fixed keel and fitting the new stub keel with the board she was hugely better to windward!especially when heeled in a strong breeze.
