"The idea is that the crew can control the angle of heel to a maximum of around 10°."

Damn, we must have one of those thingies installed in the bilge! I mean, we MUST have one of them, how else is it we also manage to keep the boat to 10 degrees of heel?!

An amazing investment in inventiveness. Having solved that problem (hull now upright) he will go on to solve the problem of wave motion - to produce the first sailing submarine, perhaps?
