when does CSF make a difference?

Yes, there are definitely more sophisticated and more accurate ways of accessing a boat''s stability. My Folkboat had a very low (1.76) CSF. But that''s not where the boat''s stability came from ....

I need a faster, more comfortable boat

I have both a 150 and 155 genoa for the boat. The problem is the winds change so often that I am forever changing sails. It''s exhausting. I put on the genoa for 3 kts and ten minutes later the...
