ok, so what is a good number?
A capsize ratio of around 2 is considered to be getting into the slow-to-recover range. Nigel Calder's "Cruising Handbook
," has a good section on relative strengths and weaknesses of hull design and explains this ratio pretty well. US Sailing and a number of other sites have info. on this ratio.
