I have the same boat but not ready yet built, yes I would think it will need a deeper keel (weighted) how much, how big I have no Idea trial and air . What I am planning is, to build the keel part from a solid peice of oak and of coarse fiber glassing the hull. I also plan on making the sailing keel removable with two 1/4" stainles althreads going through the keel and above the water line, high enough not to leak. Hope this helps.
