I have never laid a big boat over but I have laid 21 &< over on ocation...

First boat was a mac21..she laid on her side for a good 30 seconds before one of the crew grabed the keel and pulled himself up on it at which time she righted herself with force and with a full mainsail of water and me standing in the sail to boot..I would not worrie about the righting so much..I would worrie about the down flooding.


We almost lost a buckaneer 20 due to that.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
