Here are your numbers Minsy. O.K., now tell me what “ARE” stands for. Also, you will have to eventually tell me what your boat is (so I can update my database). Length is increased in the “middle” of a boat (not the ends) so it takes a certain amount of LOA before a boat grows into its ratios. Congratulations Minsy, it’s a cruiser! (your moment of inertia is the classic number for cruisers)
DSP to Length = 232.1 (200-300 is “cruising”)
Sail Area to DSP Ratio = 16.6 (Most boats are between 16-18)
Hull Speed = 7.88 kts
Velocity Ratio = 1.07 (under powered is less than 1)
LOA to Beam = 3.28 (“fine” is 3.5-4)
Capsize Risk = 1.77 (over 2 cannot compete in ocean races)
Comfort Ratio = 30.48 (cruisers are 60+)
ScottyT, your Hunter numbers aren’t bad either albeit, you do suffer a little from the “under 30’ syndrome”. Your numbers are almost a scaled down version of my 34. I’m assuming that this is one of those Chernubli (sp) Hunters? Do you race, and if so, how well do you do?
Once again, this is not a Catalina of any stripe (I’ve checked). Nor do I think it is a Com-Pac on the account of the beam dimension.
