seabreeze_97 is on a distinguished road
"Stability is like money," Castro continued. "You can never have enough."

The 409 has a ballast/displacement ratio—37 percent—at least the equal of all of her cruising competitors and carries that ballast in a modern bulb keel that's hydrodynamically clean and lift-effective, which works to create a very low center of gravity. This boat relies less than most contemporary cruisers on beam for initial stability; that allows her to achieve ultimate stabilty "well in excess of 120 degrees" according to her designer. "A narrow boat is more easily-driven, more seakindly, more mannerly. If you have enough stability in your pocket you can get all of that."

Interesting comments that tend to fly in the face of some other comments listed here. Things that make you go "Hmmmmmmm."
