CBinRI It doesn't do that much for the credibility of this board. I, for one, have been known to open a thread at work and may be less inclined to do so if no one's paying attention.

Valiente 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.
