Sailing comprises wind propulsion of a craft by means of sails and steering it over water, ice or land, depending on the type of craft. Originally Posted by Crag Cay It always amuses me that boat designers have this fascination with these complex formulae and their inherent trade offs.
For all this information to be accessible to the buying public, it should be presented to them in answer to all the natural questions they have when looking for boat. If these guys don?t really know how to interpret those data, how do you expect the average buyer to do it? STIX has the advantage of simplicity in its interpretation, the bigger the better, and even if far from perfection, it can give you an approximate idea of the boat?s stability.

Regarding STIX and Class A bots, I was not talking about Maximum Security, but about Minimum requirements for a Class A boat. Only AVS has to be taken with care because it usually gives values under the real thing, as it doesn't take into account volumes over deck. I find STIX a much more misleading info than 'Old' ratios, as we have seen thoroughly through this thread.
If you have examples to support your statement with numbers, I'd appreciate your posting here.

If all the input data for STIX was available to prospective buyers, they could make informed choices trading off good and bad points between boats. By the way, at YW magazine's last issue there is a nice comparative analysis of Dehler 44, Grand Soleil 43 and Maxi 1300, and STIX is not even mentioned for any of them.

Club 420 Sailboat sail boat sailing boat, View Sailboat, Dafman Product Details from Qingdao OSIC International Co., Ltd. A sailor manages the force of the wind on the sails by adjusting their angle with respect to the moving sailing craft and sometimes by adjusting the sail area.
The figures are available anyway, so wouldn't require more disclosure by the manufactures, but at the moment the relevancy of this information is lost when stirred together into the 'pot purri' of STIX or Categorisation. So let's build on this second point by developing an information system that is accessible, meaningful, workable and allows the consumer to really make sound choices in the boats they want to buy. The sellers will not have a clue about what you are talking about and the boat manufacturers don?t disclose that information to the public. Fact is that even professional specialized press, completely disregard the information about safety stability in the boats they are testing for their magazines. Those were very inaccurate tools that are only applicable (and very roughly) to a certain type of boat. Two different boats with the same number,and one of them is going to look obviously more suitable for the conditions in mind to the prospective customer. These basic numbers arent always available and old ratios are therefore difficult to compute when consumers really want to compare boats. Beneteaus are rather conceived as light, comfortable (home-like) and relatively cheap coastal cruisers than all weather bluewater globetrotters.
If you require further details regarding the transaction data, please contact the supplier directly.
The force transmitted from the sails is resisted by forces from the hull, keel, and rudder of a sailing craft, by forces from skate runners for an iceboat, and by forces from wheels for a land sailing craft to allow steering a course on a point of sail with respect to the true wind. Even the British press that usually publish the GZ or RM curves of the boats they test, don?t make any comments about them, neither when they are very bad, nor extremely good.

I've studied both the Final Report of the Directors and the Inquiry about the '79 Fastnet Race and I find the approach to the CSF formula at the report (named 'capsize screen value' there) to be very valid. Buyers are more likely to understand a boats character and make a reasonable judgement, without this new layer of calculations.
If it is so difficult to obtain basic data for a boat in the market now, a new emperical number defining stability is not needed. I'll try to join info from other manufactures going the other way round (as Pacific Seacraft, i.e) and post it here. While there are still some places in the world where sail-powered passenger, fishing and trading vessels are used, these craft have become rarer as internal combustion engines have become economically viable in even the poorest and most remote areas.
I dare to say that more useful info than just knowing the STIX, if one knows what to look at. Very impressive too how much of them have Category CE A, and however score with a minimum limit of ISO STIX 12217. If the buyer is reading new boat reviews, they have money, and reading graphs goes with the territory. But far meaningless than STIX (regarding stability assessment) were what Guillermo calls ?Old Ratios?. Cruising can include extended offshore and ocean-crossing trips, coastal sailing within sight of land, and daysailing.
Oceanis 473 is a bulbeb keeler and her 'Old ratios' give a pretty good idea about the boat.
