Interesting explanation, Richard. FWIW, you cannot post pictures to the
T&T List - you have to post them on a web site and then provide a link
to the site.
Obvious question: how to you anticipate dealing with the "fins" when
you're hauled out with straps running under the boat? Had a friend who's
bilge keel pulled away from the hull during a travel-lift haul out, and
his were much more substantial than what you describe for yours.
