Re: Interesting Sailboats

Moll:
I don't think you can uncomplicate that subject. Too many variables involved. B/D is not very important. What is important is location of VCG and the resultant righting arm. A boat with deep draft and a low B/D may in fact be a stiffer boat than a boat with shoal draft and a high B/D. Variables.
