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.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

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

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

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs

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.
