Thanks. JK

The Jolly Green Giant with a really, really pancake flipper could work . . .

Look JK, the question is so broad, that a full dissertation on stability and yacht design principles, would be necessary. Can you refine the question?

I would love that. But you probably have better things to do.

JK, forgive the jokesters, we mean no harm.

Your question appears to ask how to calculate the angle of heel with respect to the forces that cause that angle to take place. Well there is no simple answer. Those calculations involve a lot of intricate math or a suitable computer program that can do the work for you. If the boat was shaped like a box it would be a much easier task but a bit of math is still involved. But boats, except for barges, are not shaped like a box.

Make your question more specific, or tell us what exactly you wish to determine, and perhaps someone will reply with a suitable answer.

Are you trying to test an existing vessel?
