1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of just 15.6 suggests that the Pacific Seacraft 37 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 38.8 means that unless the bulk of the ballast is concentrated in a bulb at the foot of her keel, the Pacific Seacraft 37 will have a tendency to heel excessively in a gust, and she'll need to be reefed early to keep her sailing upright in a moderate breeze.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 334, tells us the Pacific Seacraft 37 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 33.4 suggests that crew comfort of a Pacific Seacraft 37 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 tells us that a Pacific Seacraft 37 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
