Re: D/L Ratio Questions for Cruising Boat

You will not win on this, as some like myself seem to like 170-220 or so, other 300, some as little as 100.

This number also means squat in some regards. as a 30'r with a 180 will handle different than a 50'r with a 180. Same can be said for some of the other numbers one can dig up too. ie comfort ratio to mention one.
