Factors influencing boat balance

No, Jeff. Not a loony toon. Just a guy who oes not have to take 400 words to prove I am so smart. And I can do it with humor!!!

Look closley at the shape of late 70s early 80s offshore designs and you will see treir shape does not change so much as they heel. They actually remind me of the shape of a minnow that is bulbous in the middle. That look is by design, not accident.

Now Jeff I am sure you can expand upon my observation ad nauseum.
