to the June 2010 Question
On Power to Carry Sail
By Dave Gerr, © 2010 Dave Gerr (This Issue’s Question, Page 21)
The Know It All questions and correct answers are important design tips for students as well

displacement is 6 tons.
’s cutter rig has a sail area,
with 100% fore-triangle, of 1,100 square feet. The mast and
rigging are rugged and properly stayed. Chainplates are
strong and correctly aligned. Sail-handling gear is well

darn smart, and, for this good and sufficient reason, have
hearby been awarded the distinguished title of Know It Al
with all the rights and privileges pertaining thereto.
The answer is yes because both the Stability Number and
the Stability Factor are acceptable as follows:
