Does a heeling sailboat have less hull surface contacting the water than a boat on an even keel?
This depends on the design of the boat to a certain extent, however typically when a yacht is heeling it would be moving quickly, causing the bow to raise and thus less surface area contacting the water. The majority of single hull sailing yachts would have less surface area contacting the water when heeling.

I'm not certain about your specific model of boat, but on most fiberglass hulls, there is a rubber bump or rub rail above the waterline. If you pull off the rubber cente…r piece, you will find either rivets or screws that will allow you to pry the hull apart once removed. Please note that I have seen info stating that some hulls may warp after removing the top, so this should probably only be done as a last resort.
Well, a good boat is.

Keel boats were and are used for transporting cargo, mainly inshore and on navigable rivers. They are powered barges in effect.
Some water in the hull is inevitable; that's why bilge pumps and bailing buckets were invented. But a constant inflow of water is a bad sign; you may have a leak somewhere.
Even though a bowling ball weighs less than a metal-hull ship a bowling ball in a bathtub sinks but a metal-hull ship in the ocean floats why?
The water that the hull in ship displaces is way more heavier than the hull itself, so the water surface holds the ship floating... If you had a bowling ball made of hull-mate…rial it would sink anyway.. What it does that the ship floats is the amount of displaced water, which in weight is going to be higher than the floating object's weight itself...
The hull of a boat is the body of the boat. it is the part of theboat in the water. excluding the mast, boom, sail, rudder, keel,etc.
Because of buoyancy.
A centerboard is retractable, the keel is not. A centerboard is lighter than a keel. Please see the related link below:
it is less polluted cause humans havent polluted the all of the underground yet and surface water has been caonooed in ran over by cars.
The purpose of a keel in a sailboat are to generate lift to counteract the force of the wind. The keel converts the motion of the wind into a forward motion for the sailboat.…
