Dashew does a great job of explaining the factors that affect stability in the real world in this article: SetSail » Blog Archive » Evaluating Stability and Capsize Risks For Yachts

For those of you too tired to read the above citations, I will be glad to quote them to you, in sum:

1. We know what we are doing; no one else does. We have no idea why they keep designing those death traps.

2. Just look at our graphs. We can also use Excel to prove that the Sun revolves around the Earth, but that is on a different website.

3. We do our boat designing at the center of the maritime world, Tucson Arizona.
