Well Cam, i guess 2, 400 pound plates of steel measuring 4ft by 4ft wouldn't add any stability right.....i think you are being blind to the obvious here. I never stated it was a twin keel boat... I prefer to read so i can learn more about sailboat design and history. Any boat with 32 sq feet of "wetted" keel surface and 800 pounds removed from the bottom of the hull will become less stable!
By the way Ken Barnes grw up sailing in southern California...on the ocean, and his boat did roll from being hit by a wave.... and I would rather read than type. Cherio old buddy I'm off to the crappah
