There are not to many self righting power boats. Most power boats may heel as far as 70 ~90 degrees before they capsize totally. But if you can get a USCG surf boat, then you will have a self righting boat.

The stability data for my Hardin 45 is 162 degrees... Which is much much better than any old power boat.
