Not sure what it is you are looking for. These boats are displacement design, they roll in a beam sea, sometimes, when the seas are close or a heavy wake, you have to tack or the roll can violent. They handle seas and following seas gracefully. Have never felt unsafe or uncomfortable. Have been in some serious line squalls, which were all short lived, hour or two.

The PO,also original owner took her from Tampa to Puerto Rico back in 1979. He told a story of very rough conditions.

Don't know if that helps, just not sure of what your looking for. I am a safety first type, and do not seek out bad weather, however, trust the boat can handle more then I can.

The videos of the Mischiefs trips might give you some better ideas.
