Daggerboards

A conventional sailing vessel utilises the keel-fin to impart lateral resistance which counters leeward drift. The fin of a keel which cants thus has a reduced ability to generate lateral resistance. Canting keels therefore utilise deploying retractable daggerboards to generate lateral resistance. Mechanical canting design is configured to incorporate 'foiled' (cylindrical/conical) daggerboards. Rotation of the canting mechanism deploys the leeward daggerboard while retracting the windward daggerboard.
