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. .
