Stable and substantially complete!

The builder has sent a revised stability booklet that allows eight passengers and one crew member on the upper deck in any condition of loading, including while the crane is being used. The US Coast Guard may not accept the total of nine because their deck-area rule probably allows only eight total. However, we don’t mind if the boat has a greater stability margin than is needed in service! Dave Weed recommends that the College notify AAM that we consider the R/V David Folger substantially complete.
