sailingdog Most boats are less than stable when the stern is up out of the water and badly supported... most boats don't have much stability in their forward sections, due to the narrower beam of the bow sections.

It looks like about a 17-19 footer, might have a iron swing keel and the keel is up!!

sailingdog Lancer28-

The blue sailboat capsizes because the stern isn't in the water, and can't provide the form stability that it would normally.

Lancer28 by chance did you guys see this one? how did that sailboat tip straight over after just a little heel? it looked like it was tied then someone let it go... fastest capsize I've ever seen!

Rockter Yes. As long as you can get that line ashore. The problem is getting it fast to something, and quickly.
