Re: Heavier better motion comfort ?

If you are talking the yacht he rode in the Atlantic in 2013, pictured in post #15, that is the RV Ault, a 42' Colvin Gazell.

12' beam
4' 6" draft
25,000 lbs displacement.

Re: Heavier better motion comfort ?

I think that steel boat shown was a Colvin? Typically very flat bottom sections, relatively narrow and shoal.
