Re: Length to beam ratio....and then throw in disp. as added consideration...pro/cons
Actually, I would take my 30' sailboat vs the missouri! In hurracanes and higher winds, you have longer swells, longer boats will pitch pole in those conditions, vs a smaller boat will be a cork. At the end of the day, a boat that is long enough to be comfortable, but short enough to not pitchpole or equal due to equal wave/boat length.
Beam....not sure how to make this work. Disp,,,,,, not sure on that one either. Both factors have plus and minus's to them.
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
