Righting capabilities CB

It really depends on the specific boat. Boats like the Brewer 12.8, Bristol 41.1, Hood 38, Tartan 34 for example, are fully ballasted boats that should have goodf offshore capabilities. Boats like a Macgregor 26, Catalina 22, San Juan 21 which are swing keel boats, generally lack the kind of reserve stability that I would want if I were going offshore.
