      Could you post with her sitting on her lines...
      She looks a little light on the ballast and the mast is waaay too thin!
      As she looks like a cruiser rather than a racer I would be thinking long fin keel /shallow draft as oppose to chord and bulb.
      Concave sheer - very brave! - have you seen Mirabella 3?...

      At the moment i'm yet to decide on the sail area and thus the keel, i'll have to decide the type of keel based on the required side force...

      I recently attended a lecture by the Mirabella 5 design and build team where I got to see a mast section test piece, which was approximately 1.8m by 0.8 m, the section of my sloop's is @ 2.5 x 1.2 m.

      I'll post another photo as soon as i can.

      Thanks for your interest!

      In my opinion, I think the design is appealing and sleek for a sloop.
