Re: Taipan 28 - How well offshore?

I have seen its keel described as a long keel 4 and half feet draught so that seems reasonable for 28 foot boat with 7 and half foot beam. But she does have a lot of overhangs, over7 feet on 28 boat. too much for me, she also has small sail area to disp so may not be that prone to being easily laid on its side. The 27 foot sister has waterline under 19 feet thats even worse.
