Ferry in Solent yacht rescue
Call me elitist, but I like a ship that right itself after a knockdown (and probably one that does not get's knocked down in bening (Sp?)
The MacGregor is self righting and will right itself after a knock down, and it has positive flotation meaning that even in the event of a totally flooded cabin it will not sink to the bottom like traditional sailboats but instead will remain afloat with the deck above the water for survivors to sit on.
It will not suffer a knock down under benign conditions.
