Most of my sailing is here on Green Bay and given the fact that somebody over in Michigan pulled the plug on Lake Huron/Michigan I'm very happy to be sailing with my wing keel. With sand bars created by mother nature in our river I was made aware that I bought the only C34 Catalina made with the wing keel designed and supplied by CQR???
I agree with one thing, just use good situational awareness (I always seem to learn the hard way) but thinking back to the days on my C27 I could definitely wiggle through more with the fin.
I was so happy to find a 89 C34, you know, one of the couple years they had 3'10" draft vs 4'3"!!!!
Well when I hauled this fall and checked the shiny bottom of my wing I took a tape measure to my draft and measured 4'3" Go figure, I must have accidentally stretched that tape, time for a new one.
