There is a sailboat on my pier that always seems to be rocking a
little when none of the others around it are moving.
It is a 31' Island Packet cutter rigged. Is this typical for this
model or brand?
Just curious

Maybe the occupants are just enjoying each other's company quite
frequently?

Rolling is most pronounced when the period of the wave matches the natural
rolling period of the boat. The configuration of the harbor may favor or
amplify wave lengths that have a period that is the same or a multiple of
that vessel's natural roll period. What you are seeing is a function both
of the location and the boat. It doesn't mean the boat will be a roller in
other conditions.

There used to be an H28 on a mooring in Boothbay Harbor that would be
rolling in what appeared to be flat calms when every other boat looked like
it was set in cement. I wondered for a few years what was going on and
finally learned when I started studying boat motions.

How much price inflation is caused by illegal
aliens gobbling up goods and services, creating
shortages for the natives? I heard 40%!

Actually, I've never seen anyone at the boat in 2 years! I had a time
finding out what brand it was til I saw the logo that said Traditional
Waterworks.
