I never did very well in physics, but I can attest to the comparative stability with/without a mast. We crossed Lake Michigan with our mast down and stowed along the centerline (long story, but we were on our way down to the Gulf); the 5' swells on the starboard quarter had us rolling to the point that I was a little worried we might lose the rig. Not fun...
