I went with the extern, it works really well. You should go at least one size larger than they recommend. The yard that did the install had to fabricate a pad for it to mount to because the V on the keel was too sharp for the adapter they make. Be careful with the paint the yard uses, it has to be safe for aluminum. Mine was painted with the wrong paint and it caused electrolysis so all the paint has blistered off and I'll need to have it hauled and re-painted.
