This generally doesn't work on modern sailboats, since it will miss the entire turn of the bilge and most of the keel on a full-keel boat. On a fin keel, it'll miss sections of the hull adjacent to the keel and the sides of the keel as well.

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.
