Please explain safety ratings
 
I've heard about boat safety ratings but I don't know anything about them. How do I tell if a S2 6.7 is more stable than a freedom 21?

Are you talking about capsize ratio??? AFAIK, there isn't anything called a boat safety rating. You can plug in the specifications of the boat, or look it up if it is listed, here. You can also compare a listed boat with one you enter the specifications or two listed boats there as well.

However, a capsize ratio number is only one part of the whole set of numbers... and doesn't really give you much information without context.

The Freedom 21 is listed, but the S2 6.7 is not. However, its closely related cousin, the 6.9 is listed.... the S2 6.9 does have better numbers.

Ha, except for motion the rating, my 26 Excaliber got better rating than my 45 CC,

Heyyyyy, its not the size of the boat, its the motion....

(although the only people I've heard say this have kayaks)

There is a sort of safety rating in the idea of Lloyd's classifications based on scantlings, but I believe what's being discussed is the stability factor based on the ideas of designers like Ted Brewer and Dave Geer.

I can't find the bookmark, but there's a website where you can type in the dimensional data of your particular boat and get "comfort factor" and other attributes back.

Yep, that's it. That's what convinced me my steel cutter was "moderate"...for a steel cutter!
