I see your keel and it looks much like mine. Like the flat sided tear drop rudder and it looks like a very stout shoe too. May even up-stage the Willards there mate.
And I agree sails are the best anti rolling device.

Are you on a marine railway?
Oh mate, Not much upstages a Willard, but thanks for the compliment.
The shoe is stainless. I treated it with prop speed as regular antifouling doesn't last long on it, and any buildup of growth disturbs the flow to the prop.

Yes , our little marina has a rail mounted slipping setup. It works well. There's no worries of a boat getting dropped.
