    Looks like the top of the keel is awfully close to the boom.
    So many ships . . . and so little time . . .

    That retractable system is brilliant and very well thought out. Great paint job.

    This guy engineered a retractable keel fin and rudder for his Irene schooner.

    Gary Webb's Bearospace designs are awesome and easy to build. I bought one his Irene schooners plans and built that. After a year of sailing that I modified it by adding topmasts and more sails.

    Here's a playlist of videos of the boat in action.

    On a power boat a dagger board can be the size of a large postage stamp but a sailing boat depends on the speed of the water flow over the keel for how much area is needed.
    The least possible is best and try and keep to an aerofoil section for resistance and form drag in the water.
    The green fishing boat in My Harbour has internal ballast and a relatively small area keel and it needs to be sailed with a view to the slow tacking through the wind.
    Interesting to see what you are doing.
    regards
    Roy

    My nephew teaches metal shop at the local high school close by, he will take one of the square bars and add the dagger, by welding on a 1/8โ€ thick (12 gauge) steel.

    I know the dagger is used when sailing a broad reach as it keeps the schooner from drifting. It is the same as the Wianno Senior, it too has a dagger which swivels down if the skipper desires. I found the model needed it as might the schooner. Will soon find out.

    I understand what you mean. My 1meter Baby Bootlegger and it takes a bit of turning in narrow spaces. I think it was the powerboat Miss America that had a separate small dagger/rudder up forward. A huge benefit. I guess I was looking at the lines of the yacht as well.
