Don't Rock the Boat!
Beam sea in Bass Strait in 35kts - without stabilizers!
One of the most frequent questions I get asked is "Does she roll much?". To which my answer is "Every boat rolls when there are waves, and the bigger the waves the more they roll! Ada Hardy is no different." Most often we then end up in a discussion about stabilizers and I am frequently surprised how many people (including experienced boaters) have little idea about the various types of stabilizers and how they work, so I thought a chapter on the stabilizer systems on Ada Hardy would be of interest to some.
