I've tried to find it in the 'princess records files' but if it is there clearly looked in the wrong place, I just wondered what proportion of S31 were built with bilge keels?

Does anyone know where I might find this info or have a rough idea?

The wife enjoyed her competent crew course last week so I am still allowed to look for our first boat!

Thanks.

I used to have one, and I think asked this question - the answer was not definitive but thought to be about 50:50.
By the way there is also a rig variation - the majority have masthead rigs, but there was also a fractional rig option with a taller mast, more opportunity to tune the rig for racing. I imagine those were all fin-keelers.

Thanks, means I shall keep looking and waiting.
