1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of just 14.4 suggests that the Allmand 35 will need a stiff breeze to get her going. In light conditions, unless you've got plenty of time on your hands, motor-sailing may be the way to go.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 28.5 means that a sailboat like the Allmand 35 (which doesn't have the benefit of a stiffness-enhancing bulb keel), is likely to benefit from being reefed early to keep her sailing upright in a moderate breeze.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 302, tells us the Allmand 35 is clearly a heavy displacement cruising boat. You can load her down with all your cruising gear and equipment and it will hardly affect her waterline. Not an ideal choice for coastal sailing, but she'll come into her own on an offshore passage in testing conditions.
4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 29.4 suggests that crew comfort of a Allmand 35 in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of a coastal cruiser with moderate stability, which is not the best of news for anyone prone to seasickness.
5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 1.9 indicates that a Allmand 35 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
