Marty:
Problem is if we are comparing a 6' draft Oyster to a 10' draft Oyster you are NOT going to get the same Rm. I don't care what humungous shape that they hang on that 6' keel tip. You will never get the VCG of the 10' draft model. And just adding ballast will have it's own set of negative effects.

Go now.
Go deep.
Don't go to the Bahamas.
