    Angle of heel at main hull takeoff

    An update from the manufacturer of the Multi 23: post 17

    "This question depends on the total weight of the boat (including the weight of the crew which is a variable) and therefore the submerged volume in the water of downwind float...
    In theory (flat water condition), if float is submerged about half its volume, we could get an approximate inclination angle of 20°."
