Thanks! SA/D of the Bristol is 15.9 with 41% ballast/D
For the Contest, we get 16.9 with 42% Ballast/D
Of course, I can not compare lateral area / anti-drift area vs wl.
I really like the Contest, beautiful joinery... but very very pri$ey !

As a matter of comparaison, http://cruisingresources.com /Ericson_38_%281980_-_1990%29
must have made a blunt mistake for the E38! It seems they do not include ballast in their displacement! ( do they inflate it ?)
