103. Sailboat stability. To be considered safe for ocean sailing, the capsize screening
value C should be less than 2 (www.sailing.com). For a boat with a beam (or width) bin
feet and displacement d in pounds, C is determined by the function
Find the capsize screening value for the Tartan 4100, which has a displacement of
23,245 pounds and a beam of 13.5 feet.
Solve this formula for d.
The accompanying graph shows C in terms of d for the Tartan 4100 (b = 13.5). For
what displacement is the Tartan 4100 safe for ocean sailing?
