5. Capsize Screening Formula: 1.9
1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 20.6 suggests that, in the right hands, the Moody 41 Classic will have enough performance to leave most other sailboats of similar waterline length well astern.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 28.1 would usually mean that the Moody 41 Classic would have a tendency to heel uncomfortably in a gust, and need to be reefed early to keep her sailing upright in a moderate breeze.
However, as she has much of her ballast concentrated in a bulb at the foot of her keel, she's likely to be considerably stiffer than her published Ballast/Displacement Ratio might suggest.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 211 tells us the Moody 41 Classic 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 28.9 suggests that crew comfort of a Moody 41 Classic 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 Moody 41 Classic would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
