I can't think of one off-hand, but given the variety of boats that have come out over the years, I'm sure that they've made at least a few with this problem.

Now if you try to cross an ocean in a boat like that itís a very different story.
All the best,

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
