Paulk thanks again for your wisdom. I have analyzed the formula for the metric in detail and understand what its measuring. But also realize the formula was created as a joke even though the elements do give some loose indication of stability in rough seas. Thus I only use it as a secondary comparison, not a filter.
Bruce I am still interested in getting a list of boats to speed my search. But I see I am getting some solid resistance. If my request is futile tell me.
