The Big Picture

In the big picture view there are three areas of concern to identify a seaworthy hull:

2 Stability. Is the boat stable enough? Does it have enough righting moment to recover from a severe knockdown?

3 Attachments and penetrations. Are all the fittings, joints, through hulls and openings properly mounted and sealed?
