    I don't believe that skeg/keel would be as effective as a centerboard, or leeboards, for minimizing leeway under sail.

    There are 3 versions.

    A. Long keel - aka Amazon.
    B. Centerboard/ lifting rudder (right)
    C. Centreboard on a skeg - fixed rudder (bottom)

    I would doubt sail balance on the long keel version. I would expect lee helm.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Any Europeans here sailed/ had a Swift Explorer 18 ketch dinghy? That had a long keel with trail.
