      According to PCB, the basic idea behind a deep keel is that the water near
      the surface is moved by the wind. A deeper keel is needed to make
      significant progress upwind. This is more significant off-shore in the
      ocean than it is in your local lake or river.

      > what about adding small keel to the flat bottom say just 3 inches deeper
      and two or three inches wider for the whole length. would that be enough to
      provide good lee drift control or does the keel always have to be so deep to
      be of a real use
