The righting moment, center of effort, and center of gravity are determined not only by the weight of the ballast but where that weight is placed so a keel boat will have more weight lower, be stiffer, and point better as the weight and the center of effort will be lower. Also centerboard boats tend to be noisier and risk the board jambing in thetrunk.
