I do not know about scaling up. Scaling down to extreme of a pond sailor will not work without Hull and ballast changes. It has something to do with flow, both laminar and turbulent and rheological constants. Trial and error carries a lot of weight in design considerations; you will never really know until you build it and undergo sea trials.
