Its hard to believe that my big tubby boat could tip over easily. The only two variables in determining capsize values are displacement and beam. I would think that keel size, shape, and ballast would be factors also.
A tubby boat is not neccessarily any more or any less prone to capsize. US Sailing has an Angle of Vanishing Stability caculator on their website, check it out: http://www.sailingusa.info/cal__avs.htm
I read that if a wave approaches the size of your beam, then you may be toppled. But I think that frequency and shape of waves matter too. In canoe hulls they talk about primary and secondary stability. My Bayfield is 29' with 10'2" beam; most likely regarded as more primary stability, according to the calculators. Other boats in her class, like the Cape Dory and Southern Cross, have less beam and rate as more stable in the capsize value chart.
The ballast in the keel is indirectly incorporated into a boat's displacement value.
They don't have any Hans Christian listed? D - ARRRGH- N !!
HC38 is 1.62 Which one do you want? I'd like the cutter myself :-) (33 or 43)
The 43 has more room and that's a plus in my book. The Cutter is a nice choice!

DOLPHN 40 AMP BATTERY CHARGER

Hello all.The Dolphin 40amp battery charger in my 2011 43 is charging well, EXCEPT the cooling fan is cycling on and off every 20 seconds or so. Volts and amps are correct  although there is red light top and centre flashing red, does not look happy.It seems as if the thermostat controlling the fan is not functioning correctly as the unit is not even warm.I cannot locate the Beneteau supplied manual, any clues as to the fault.Regards,Bilgolabands (Liberte)See More

"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well. I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left  me handicapped.  I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
