Replying to:RL24 stability
OK. Maybe stupid questions, but I have to ask them! I'm currently looking to buy an RL24, and would like opinions of benefits of drop vs swing keel, in regards to boat stability. I have heard some horror stories of overturned, and even boats that have sunk! What is effect on boat stability of drop vs swing keel? What are likely causes of overturning? At what angle will the boat tip over? If boat has tipped over, how well does it float? Does water enter the cabin? Whats the best way to re-right?

Thanks for any responses! rgds, ian
