Could be. We roll in seas of more than 4 or 5 meters, if they hit us right (or wrong, depending on your point of view), sometimes violently. We roll at anchor
if we're exposed to the weather
. I can imagine that, as another advantage of cats. Rolling is unpleasant, no question about it.
But in terms of speed it sounds like we're right with you.
