Re: Blue Jacket 40 (new racer/cruiser)
I will have to check what data they used to calculate. THe data online and published by Catalina is INCORRECT. This is well known for those of us that have these boats and have been well documented in Mainsheet and the owners forums. The correct data is:
Draft MK2: 5'10-6 feet.
Displacement: Well over 19500, dry.
If they pulled the Catalina literature and used their numbers, they are wrong. I got the pictures to prove it!!
Brian, they did not pull anything. They have asked to Catalina Yachts stability curves regarding the boats they have tested.
Those stability curves were provided by Catalina. The AVS were taken from the delivered curves.
Do you mean that the Catalina designers don't know how to do the stability curves of their own designs?
