1. A Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 15.1 suggests that the Sadler 32 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 44.2 means that the Sadler 32 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 308, tells us the Sadler 32 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.
4. Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 24.4 suggests that crew comfort of a Sadler 32 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 Sadler 32 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
