What is a keel

A keel is the long bottom part of a ship that allows the ship to be tall and wide and not sink. The keel makes the ship steady in water and not flip over by a small wave

why does the ship need a shot sail and a small mast
Why does the ship need a shot sail and a small mast?

If a ship has a short mast the weight will decrease so the base wont break through in serious conditions.

The small sail wont get affected by too much wind on very windy days at sea, and can wobble without taking in any water
