lateral slip, which mostly arises as a result of the fact
that the wind usually wants to push the boat sideways as
well as forward. This isn't much of an issue on powerboats
because they aren't using wind as their motive force.
I doubt that leeboards would make the boat more seaworthy,
in fact it might cause it to "trip" in a broaching sea.
What they would be good for is for giving directional
stability in a cross wind, especially when docking. I think
that the BIG power sharpie (sorry, forget its name) has a
centreboard for this reason.
