Maybe you can calculate a co-efficient of comfort. A slow roll ,even if extreme is easier to tolerate than than the quick action of a power vessel or cat in heavy action. The older west coast trollers were narrow gutted with mast and trolling poles. Rolled like a pig in the wrong period swell but they were great sea boats and comfortable.even without a steady sail .
