This upright keel template is designed primarily for traditional fish shapes, but the application extends to contemporary keel shapes as well. It has a lower sweep (rake) than most conventional, wider based keels which allows it to pivot in a really tight radius.The high area and depth not only deliver a feeling of control when pushed harder on the open face, but helps to maintain tremendous speed through roundhouse cutbacks.
Designed by Al Merrick for the Fish Beard model.
The JS Modern Keel is an upright keel template designed for the JS Red Baron and other specialty fish shapes. Featuring a wide base and a relatively small sweep (rake), this high area keel provides control through the face and pivot in a tight radius.
