Jeff H makes some good points. I would add that, in addition to the keel configuration possibly slowing the period of the roll, the standing rigging has a large effect. In summary, there are too many variables to make a rule about the beam alone. I think your best choice would be to compare the action of the boats with wind and wakes. It's easiest to stand ashore and compare the swinging arc of different mastheads in the marina during rolling conditions, Take care and joy, Aythya crew
