When docked, how much more stable is an Alberg 30 compared to an Irwin 25? Looked at 72 Irwin other day and had to get out feeling queasy.?

Update:

Thats a 1972 Irwin, don't think it's a full keel like the Alberg. How much heavier is the Alberg, and wouldn't the extra weight alone add to the stability?

    I had both an Irwin 25 and 30. If you got queasy at the dock it was probably due to the smallness of the boat. You can't even standup down below. The difference between a 25 and 30 it not just 5 ft in length. It's the larger volume that makes the difference. At sea the motion is about the same.

    I doubt stability will make a difference. It's usually the small bobbing up and down that causes nausea.
