'Sea Otter Too', a Columbia 29 Sailboat for Sale
Now with a new owner and no longer for sale, but the original ad remains available with interior pics and details for anyone researching these great little cruising boats.
1. Sail Area/Displacement Ratio: 16.4
2. Ballast/Displacement Ratio: 42
3. Displacement/Length Ratio: 290
4. Comfort Ratio: 29.5
5. Capsize Screening Formula: 1.6
1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 16.4 suggests that she'll approach her maximum hull speed readily and satisfy the sailing performance expectations of most cruising sailors.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 42 means that she'll stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 290, tells us she's 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 will come into her own on an offshore passage in testing conditions.
4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 29.5 suggests that crew comfort in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of a coastal cruiser, which is not encouraging news for anyone prone to seasickness.
5. Her Capsize Screening Formula of 1.6 tells us that she would be a better choice of sailboat for ocean passage-making than one with a CS rating of more than 2.0.
