Westerly Fulmar

I am excited because my offer was accepted on a 1982 32'' Westerly Fulmar. After reading many articles and after viewing 35 or more different manufacturers and visiting and inspecting countless boats in the 32-40 foot size range over the last 6 months, I finally made my offer. The boats appearance is a little rough but I suspect she will pass the survey. I''ve asked for a very thorough survey (deck down, engine and rigging) so I know as many details as possible and will begin the process of restoring her beauty.

With that said, I searched this website via Boat Check for a review of Westerlys. I found every model they made accept the Fulmar. Does anyone else know of this model? Here are some details:

Draft=4'' (Twin Keel)
Deck Stepped Mast

My question here is when I calculate the capsize formula, she shows as being prone to capsize and this concerns me. However, I know I read an article somewhere describing the twin keel as being very stable but I can''t find the article. Does anyone have any insight to this keel design?
