Cheoy Lee ballast/displacement ratio
...and Jeff, I could be overly critical of that T34 cockpit, too. That''s why I encouraged Gary to come to his own conclusions. But what I remember was a mainsheet/traveler across the middle of an overly narrow cockpit sole with straight-backed, low wooden coamings and, as we''d all expect for a boat of that era and heritage, not a curved surface in sight. The most vivid part of my recollection was how one person wanting to move meant 3 other pairs of legs needing to be adjusted. Another time, when I sailed on this boat, it was a comfy, light-wind day down the Severn and off the mouths of Spa and Back Creeks...but put the boat on its ear in bouncy water and things would have been more awkward, I would think...
Let me hear what you think if/when you get the chance...but try for the ''30 minute test''! <g>
