Reply To: Keel depth

David Babsky

The 1.55 metre keel – like ours – is 1.55m ..that’s 5 foot 1 inch.. at the leading edge of the keel, but it gets slightly deeper, down to about 5 foot 3 inches amidships. Worth bearing in mind when planning trips and estimating times to clear sandbanks (e.g; Dunkerque, Littlehampton, Bembridge and assorted lock sills)!
