    Thanks for the exterior photo. Do you have any of the interior and the actual retraction mechanism?

    Do all lifting-keels use essentially the same type of mechanism? Because, I remember last year when Mirabella V ran aground there was much discussion about the keel having dropped, and some design sketches of lifting keels circulated about the net... maybe someone can dig one of those up...?
