Another possibillity, is a round bottom as mentioned, along with a shallower keel and lower % of ballast to disp, and/or along with a taller mast.

A deeper heavier keel will counter the above water movement potential a bit better with the longer pivot arm to stop the rolling. A taller mast/shorter keel, the keel does not have the potential to stop the rolling as easy.

my 01 to the mess.
