1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of just 10.0 suggests that the Finnsailor 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 will be the way to go.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 28.6 means that a sailboat like the Finnsailor 35 is likely to benefit from being reefed early to keep her sailing upright in a moderate breeze.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 243, tells us the Finnsailor 35 is a moderate displacement cruiser, which means she'll carry all your cruising gear without it having a dramatic effect on her performance. Most of today's sailboats intended for offshore cruising fall into this displacement category.
4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 31.3 suggests that crew comfort of a Finnsailor 35 in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of a moderate bluewater cruising boat - a predictable and acceptable motion for most seasoned sailors.
5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 1.7 indicates that a Finnsailor 35 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
