      Very cool.

      I understand the point of a box keel when it comes to
      a power boat, there are several points, but what is
      the point of it for a sailboat? Why not just cut to
      the chase with a plywood V bottom. It's kind of like
      the rule of mixtures, you end up with that kind of
      stability, more surface drag, and building complexity,
      and an odd shape. This team hasn't proven bullet
      proof on predicting stability so far, which would be
      another worry. With Seven stars the box keel looks
      rather deep, almost like a wineglass, or half way to a
      fin, but its hard to really know since the pictures,
      which are great, don't show amidship.

      I have successful uploaded 2 pictures of Seven Stars
      to the Bolger 2<BR>
      files. It shows the extreme box keel bow and sharp
      entry. If I remember<BR>
      correctly this boat is 50' by 11 beam. The draft I am
      a little unsure<BR>
      of, in the 2-2.5 range board up I believe. <BR>
