Safety of larger centerboard boats

Larger Little Harbor's and Bristol's (53's) are both centerboard/keel designs. From my understanding, a Little Harbor was lost this past year on its way down the coast during a major storm. I've heard people question the safety of a centerboard design vs. a fixed keel in a major storm. Any thoughts?
