Righting capabilities CB

Tartan 37''s are generally considered to be self-righting, but I have found them to be a little tender and very rolly at deep reaching and downwind sailing angles. That is a motion that I really do not like and so for myself would not consider them good offshore boats (I personally do not like rolly boats) although for many people these have used these boats offshore with reasonably good success. I also consider their sail plan to be a real pain in the butt for short handed cruising.
