A boat that is tender has low initial stability, but may harden up as it heels over. This is often the case with older wineglass shaped hulls, since they have little form stability and often have narrower hulls than more modern designs.

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.
