but no 4th dimension as time has no meaning when you're chilling out on a boat. (unless of course you're trying to get home before the tide turns.

395. draught, board(s)/plates(s) up/down
396. metacentric shelf
397. centre of lateral resistance
398. centre of gravity
399. cenre of buoyancy
400. GZ

Sorry, had to get to 400 - it's a coverline-writer thing (400 best yacht dimensions...)
