Re: hughes 29 a question
It's kinda tricky to put these kinds of boats on tide grids, although in this case from the profile drawing the keel is quite flat/level at the bottom and it appears that she might balance well there.
I'd be certain where the keel tip is in relationship to the deck, and be equally sure that you're sitting between the beams (if there's a pad there) or squarely on a beam if the beams are open in between. However sitting on that single beam wouldn't make me very comfortable and finding the proper 'balance' point will be trickier - and nothing for it if you get it wrong... the tide will still keep falling
