Your dedinition of seaworthiness is yet the briefest and most generalized. Its a good one.
Other deffenitions:
1. "Seaworthiness is basically the ability of a boat to live in heavy weather without swamping, capsizing, breaking up or being heavily damaged while underway"..(Howard I. Chapelle..auther of "yacht designing and planning".
2. "Strong durable and watertight construction, structurally sound rig, good survival charachteristics in extreme weather conditions".

I'm still accumulating other views..as you can see i find a very close relation to these deffenitions and the concept of "safty", and the concept of "the perfect boat"..
Awaiting for more input from people!

Very sensible. Personally, I ignore the rep power, and do not use the facility on others. I peaked shortly at 3 but was soon batted back down to one. Is there any way of finding out which of one's posts were judged good or bad?

zmfmd Im trying to accumulate how different scientists/designers/seasoned sailors define "SEAWORTHINESS"..wich to me has a lot to do with my "perfect boat"..i'll post it later..meanwhile, how does everyone define his perfect boat? and deffenition of "seaworthiness"?

Todays quote, (food for thought) :
"Its a general rule of thumb that in any new design of a yacht, nine-tenths is 90% borrowed from exisistib plan...and 10% adapted. Of the remaining tenth, 9% seems to fit in place by luck, 1% is genuine inspiration or "art", and 90% is pure trail and error."

sailingdog Tell me that when the ice is 3' thick, instead of the two inches you've got there... For ice, I want a big steel icebreaker with lots of diesel HP....
