1. Her Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of the Westerly Conway 36 isn't known, but word has it she's no slouch.
2. A Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 44.4 means that the Westerly Conway 36 will stand up well to her canvas in a blow, helping her to power through the waves.
3. A Displacement/Length Ratio of 260, tells us the Westerly Conway 36 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 31.5 suggests that crew comfort of a Westerly Conway 36 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 1.8 tells us that a Westerly Conway 36 would be a safer choice of sailboat for an ocean passage than one with a CSF of more than 2.0.
