Cheoy Lee ballast/displacement ratio
I am interested in the Cheoy Lee Offshore and Clipper 33 models. Both of these boats have a reputation for offshore abilities, including circumnavigations. Both have ballast/displacement ratios which vary according to source and individual boat, but mostly run in the 25-30% range. I realize they have low aspect ketch rigs, but still this seems like a meager amount of ballast for an offshore boat. Comments please?
