I am told that these high aspect ratio ‘blades’ with lead torpedoes at the tips are only tested against static loads. If so, this is dangerously inadequate and explains the tragic failures, even without taking account of the fact that some might have suffered grounding damage. When a yacht is rolling, the highly efficient aerofoil-shaped fin is exposed to much greater angles of attack than when steadily heeled and making leeway. This generates much higher ‘lift’ forces, and these in turn are often accompanied by the high momentum loads of a long, heavily tipped pendulum. It is clear from pictures that these excessive loads, applied to a very narrow attachment base, are not adequately transmitted to an appropriately designed web frame inside the hull. If aircraft wings were similarly designed and anchored they would tear off at the first sign of clear air turbulence. To be safe, yacht keels must be designed and tested to realistic, at sea dynamic loads, including yachts built specially for racing where the owner/skipper has a legal liability for the safety of any hired crewmembers. There is a simple solution, but it might knock half a knot of the top speed. How many lives is that worth?

"She has a very narrow hull with two good sea berths amidships.  The galley is just aft of the berths, sink to starboard and cooker to port.  Step down from companionway just aft of galley; seating to change into or out of wet gear without making sleeping area wet. Head all the way forward is OK but not great.  Low free board means sink does not drain on port tack. Hull form is very, very sea kindly.  Beautiful sailor, easy to steer in wide range of conditions and points of sail.  For a small boat she is a competent cruiser."
