Does the 'roll' (side-to-side motion) of a boat at dock get lessened by the width of its beam? Or does that not really matter if the sea is up a bit. My partner is more sensitive to 'roll' on a boat than I am and I am looking at several different boats all in the same size range. (30-36') Can't afford a live-aboard catamaran otherwise I would go that route for her comfort. Any input would be appreciated. Are some makes of boat less 'roly' than others? Interested in the Cape Dory but am in earliest stages of boat shopping.

Chesapeake Bay area
