A centerboard is lighter, therefore not as strong. The centerboard is retractable, the keel is not. Please see the related link below:


How the retractable keel works?

I've only had experience with one, but here goes: They are hinged on the side of the top & have a cable attached the bottom of the keel. In the cockpit, there is a windlass which is wound & locked in place. This facilitates pulling up the keel all the way for running with the wind or leaving it only halfway down for reaching across the wind. Remember this: No keel, no steering!


What are some sentences that have the word keel in them?

The keel of the boat is made of lead and weighs 600 lbs. Even though customers can make me feel upset sometimes, I try to keep an even keel when dealing with them. That boat will not be able to sail in such shallow water because of its large keel. Sailboats with a mast of any appreciable size need a keel to remain stable. I am so tired, I feel like I could keel over at any moment.

What is the safest lenght sailboat to cross the pacific?

Sailboats of 27 feet have soloed the Pacific. This requires an experienced captain. The term "Safe" is subjective. You can sail a very safe 30 footer or sail an 100 footer that has been badly designed. In general most boat manufacturer that build sailboats of 30 feet plus are safe for the Pacific. Its up to you and the course you steer to avoid heavy weather, that will make the difference. Also many 30 footers are designed according to the OCEAN standards. The heavier the keel the more stability you get in heavy weather, so go for the long keel option when looking for a sail boat. Sailboats of 27 feet have soloed the Pacific.

Who makes the largest swing keel sailboat?

The largest "swing" keel "production" yacht (ie. keel pivots/rotates into hull) is probably the Northshore Southerly 54rs. They have only just started construction, so if this does not count, then the next model down the 46rs is probably the biggest. Draught varies between 7 foot, to less than 3 foot with the keel up on the 46rs and it can be beached. In terms of "custom" designed yachts, the Bill Dixon Yacht Design Company have made a 100 foot yacht with a swing keel named Liara II (Liara II actually has a tubular keel, meaning the lower half of the keel with the bulb is lifted into the out keel casing. It works in the same way a telescope does. But large yachts can accommodate swing keels). Coincidently, Bill Dixon designed the (hull) Southerly 46rs as mentioned above. As for yachts with "lifting" keels (ie. keel moves vertically upwards) the biggest production may be the Hanse 630e which as the name suggest is 63 foot in lenght. Marten also producte a lifting keel yacht I belive. Wally have adjustable boards, as do products of many of the larger builders but it could be argued that these are custom, rather than production models as they all vary. As for custom yachts, adjsutable boards are fairly common, the biggest may be Mirabella V, her draught can vary between 32 feet and 13 feet. Mirabella V is 247 foot in lenght and set numerous records upon completion of construction in terms of size, sail area, mast height ect. The Southerly 57 is on the water at Southampton Boat Show and there is a 65 on the way.


How far should your tiller rudder extend into the water for a 20' swing keel sloop?

There's no single right answer that will cover any 20' sloop, the size and shape of the keel the form of the hull and how the sails are ballanced will all affect what size rudder is needed, as well as the shape of it. Also the answer will depend on what handling characteristics are desired. As for just the depth of the rudder, usually it will go to slightly less depth than the keel when the keel is at it's deepest. Some lifting keel yachts, especially smaller ones, also have a lifting rudder.

Do you use a keel to determine a ships latitude?

A keel has nothing to do with the latitude.A keel does two things:structurally, it acts as the spine(or the breastbone) of the ship to tie the crosswise "ribs" together and provide strength.If the keel is seen on the outside of the hull as a fairly narrow ridge running fore-aft, it'll also help the boat stay on course. This is particularly important for sailing ships, for which the wind will try to push them sideways.Smaller yachts and sailboats can have a fin-like keel sticking straight down instead of a long ridge.Even smaller boats will have a daggerboard doing the same service
