Twin Skegs

I had a previous post about twin keels. I finally found some pictures of something similar:

 

I spent a little time last week seeing how this would work on my boat:


 

The further aft the keel is the taller it needs to be as the stern drops down.  Possible doable – I’ll give it some more thought. Having the boat sit neatly as a tripod just seems right to me.
