Yes, that is generally correct although once again, over and over, I hate to make generalities. We could interoduce a few variables into that staement that would prove it wrong. But I get what you are saying and I agree.

"Chine" itself does not affect heeling angle. A flat botton boat will be stiff, a deep vee chine boat will be tender, untill it is not. Untill the vee part is flat in the water.
Boats are meant to sail at different angles.
My boat, Paul Johnson Venus4 ,(whuddya know) has no flat area when upright. Round, but very deep vee, and very heavy,(12tons /30'wl) It heels over a LOT. When the deep vee part is flat,she is in her place.. It is un-natural for a deep vee boat, (hard or round) to sit straight up.

Well, that's one way to look at it.
But he's right. A chine in itself has little to do with stability. There can be a lot of boat around that chine.

You probably wouldn't notice the difference between sailing a hard chine , multi chine or radiused chine, fully loaded cruising boat.
Beware of hard chined boats with excessive flare to their topsides. They are extremely tippy and tender ,at all angles of heel . They do that to try look like a round bilged hull , but how many round bilged hulls have much in the way of flare to their topsides? Not many.
Beware of the tendecy to spend a huge amount of extra cash on a radiused chine or round hull, for a much smaller increase in resale value, a common mistake, and often a money losing proposition. .

Interestingly enough our Pape 44, a SteelMaid, has for plates, the top on actually has a bit of flam. I had wondered about the purpose of that.

We are still quite new to the boat and don't have sufficient experience to comment much but my initial feeling is that she is fairly tender initially but hardens up at about 45. Knowing this belies my stupidity and inexperience in other matters.
