What is the approximate range in pounds that a lead keel should weigh to support a 50 X 8 mahogany racing sailboat, while offering as little resistance as possible during racing?
I have a German made sailboat built in 1914. The width of the keel is hard for me to measure but it is 15' long along the boat's hull and its depth (from hull to floor of keel) is 22" tapering to 6".
I need a general idea so to calculate needs for having the boat moved.
All thoughts are greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much!
