Bayfield 29, angle of vanishing stability

does anyone know the angle of vanishing stability of Bayfield 29 ?
I would figure a value around 115-120 degrees but I don't know distribution of weights and hull profile so I can't verify,
thank you.

I would say that the angle is less than that, somewhere down around 105-110 degrees. You are talking about a beamy, high freeboard, heavy rigging, moderately lightly ballasted, shoal draft boat,.
