I remember when the first wing based keels were starting out, all the controversy between them blowboaters when the first one was used in Americas Cup races.

Blowboaters are cheap, they won't spend any money.

America's Cup, Newport, RI, 1983. The atmosphere there was electric. I was a sophomore at UConn and we took a ride down there to check it out.
