One year later this post, I come to give my "little" advice.
I am a french sailor and just bought an Ovni 365.
last year, I hired this boat for a 3 weeks test trip and this made me sure that it was THE boat I need as I will go both in Artic and Antartic areas.
Just to remind one very important thing about AVS.
The first point is the ship owner, not the ship herself. How will be manage a really bad weather
The second point is that capsizing is never due to the wind
force but to the waves force. And with a centerboard
up, you have really less chance to capsize
in such condition.
Now, what happens if you are capsizing? Your ship will be in an unstable position, exactly in the same way as a non centerboard
ship due to the balasts in the hull
. And she will recover in the same way as the kill is just 150 kg so quite null regarding the 3.5 tons of the balast.
It was just an advice. Sorry for my english
, I work for an US company since a while but this is not enough to be so fluent...
