Sub / Sailboat

i saw this ad on craigslist. it looks like but very narrow to live or be in, but what do most of you think, can this be rolled over? it would be kinda card for large waves to even roll this baby over. but sailing with this is not the same due to most or the bottom half of the boat is underwater and the other above.

It can flip like any other monohull. If it gets sideways to a large, steep, breaking wave the hull wants to slide down the wave but the keel in the water acts enough like a drogue that the mast is well below the horizontal, then the breaking crest slaps the underside of the hull and over she goes.
Any boat can be flipped under the right conditions.

It has an interesting rig though. Did you notice?

Have fun

Deep boats with little freeboard is not a new concept, look at most of the designs from the first half of the 20th century. Many considered boats with high freeboard poor designs.

My first ocean trip was on Scaramouche, a German Frers design. All the sinks had diaphragm pumps on the drains to be able to pump the water up and out of the boat. The engine was completely under the cabin sole.

The Delta rig is a Gary Hoyt idea.

Not new

LF Herreshoff did one in the mid '30s if I recall correctly. I don't remember much about it other than it's supposed to outperform in load and drag. Yet another 'it works better in reality, but hasn't sold well because it isn't stylish/fashionable.'.
