This is an overly broad and badly made generalization. There are many swing keel or centerboard boats that are quite seaworthy. In a recent thread, the subject of centerboard/swing keel bluewater boats came up, and the Ovnis were mentioned. These are very well regarded centerboard boats.

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.
