  Keel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The keel runs in the middle of the ship, from the bow to the stern, and serves as the foundation or spine of the structure, providing the major source of structural strength of the hull.
Keels are different from centerboards and other types of foils in that keels are made of heavy materials to provide ballast to stabilize the boat.
Retracting keels may pivot (a swing keel) or slide upwards to retract, and are usually retracted with a winch due to the ballast.

 Larry Keel - Biography
Keel’s distinct style of flatpicking the guitar is the tool with which he creates his original brand of songwriting and his peers have taken notice.
Like Keel, Mark was exposed at an early age to the music of the Southern Appalachian Mountains and by listening to Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers and Flatt & Scruggs on the radio and in family members’ record collections, Mark became familiar with the songs and stylings of Bluegrass.
Larry Keel is a true heir to the Bluegrass legacy, and his talents as a guitar genius, as an innovative and expressive singer-songwriter and as a bandleader place him amongst the best of the purveyors of American Mountain Music.

 Keel: Rugludallur
A keel is a dual purpose hydrofoil, firstly it counteracts any heeling movement, secondly it minimizes any sideways drift.
Like aerobatic planes a keel is a symetrial wing, only by altering the angle of attack can lift (force) be generated.**** When the angle at which the waterflow hits the wing is altered both deflection and the Bernoulli effect create a huge force.
Some people will swear by full keels*****, they might limit the drift but this is offset by a huge wetted area and by the increased pointing ability****** the drift can be counteracted.

 About the Wing Keel   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-18)
For the boat traveling through the water, the smaller vertical part of the keel develops less capsizing force because part of the side force is developed with the wing, which has the downward (anticapsizing) force.
water flow over the keel is accentuated, and, at the bottom of the keel, the flow is almost vertical, and that is where vortex drag is created.
All this is saying is that since the wing keel has the same weight for less total length as a fin keel, there is less sideways force exerted on the surface of the keel.

 Halfbakery: Fish Keel
The keel hangs deep in the water, from two lines on port and starboard that are connected to winches on deck.
In addition, the back of the keel has a vertical fin, similar to the tail fin of a fish, that can be tilted to the left or to the right by control cable to move the fish keel to port or starboard while the boat is moving and provide the lift needed to reduce drift.
In the case of this and all sailboat keels, the lift is a horizontal force that counters drift.

 Distributed Web-Applications using the Keel Meta-Framework
Keel is a project that aims to not re-invent any wheels, but instead to provide the backbone to connect many different kinds of wheels together.
Keel provides a deployment option whereby the application server/container runs in the same virtual machine as the web application itself (although with an isolated classpath by means of a custom classloader), allowing the entire application to be deployed as a single.war file.
The Keel server is called by Struts to perform the application logic as needed, and the application logic uses the same container to get access to the services it requires to operate, such as database persistence, scheduling, email, event handling, workflow, reporting, and authentication and authorization, all via a single simple container interface.

His deliberate response to this accidental observation was to redesign the keel of the modern sailing yacht.
The flared shape of the Scheel Keel (illustration B) greatly reduces the leeward-to-windward water flow, thus reducing residual resistance.
Water flow along the sides of a conventional keel tends to be turbulent (illustration D) which further contributes to the negative effects of residual resistance.
