Draft MK2: 5'10-6 feet.

Displacement: Well over 19500, dry.

LWL: 38-38.5

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?
