Turning Back To The Keel Foil

Variety is fun. Therefore I turn back to the keel foil. It is time to coat it by carbon fabric. I have chosen carbon instead of glass fabric because of the higher tensile strength. My keel foil is 350 mm longer than the original one designed by Dudley Dix. The higher bending moment requires stronger material.
