1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 16.0 suggests that the Frigate 36 will, in the right conditions, approach her maximum hull speed readily and satisfy the sailing performance expectations of most cruising sailors.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 44.9 means that the Frigate 36 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 355, tells us the Frigate 36 is in the ultra-heavy displacement category. Load her up as much as you like and her performance will be hardly affected, not that it was ever startling. Few if any sailboats are built to this displacement category these days - but they remain popular with some long-distance sailors.
4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 29.2 suggests that crew comfort of a Frigate 36 in a seaway is similar to what you would associate with the motion of a coastal cruiser with moderate stability, which is not encouraging news for anyone prone to seasickness.
5. The Capsize Screening Formula (CSF) of 1.8 tells us that a Frigate 36 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
