Congrats. Now, get out there and roll that sucker over!
Just kidding. I was skimming over, an in addressing your primary concern, no, there's nowhere to go to read something that'll convince you the boat will not turn over. If you are convinced, you're sailing while blindfolde. Any boat will turn over if pushed (intentionally or accidentally) beyond its limits. Your best bet is to know those limits, avoid exceeding them when possible, and be prepared for when they are exceeded.

Well, we did it! Sabre 362. She arrived home last weekend. This holiday weekend will be spent cleaning, organizing, and making her our own.....!
Thanks again everyone!

I remember the day i got over my fear of capsize, mucking around in my grandparents bog standard grp rowing/sail dinghy.
I was still learning and seeing the water come close to the gunwales was alarming. A bug gust pushed it right under and water poured in, until i luffed up and upright.
Its funny. From then on I was fine. Its like i knew where the tipping point was (and that i wasnt that close to it).
Some v good advice in these posts...
Trust, both of the boat and people.
If youre up for doing the dinghy training thats fantastic. Some of the best sailors in the world learned in dinghys.
The right clothing can make an AMAZING difference. Nudge to hubby. Make a present on some cozy fleece lined off shore gear.
Its great youre pushing your boundaries. It'll be so worth it when it all comes together and youre out on the sparkling sea.

Been a marked increase in the purchase and wearing of automatic inflatables, which is a good thing.
