How much will the Pocket Ship self right itself?

I am assuming that the pocket ship is not fully self righting.

 

With that in mind If one was to push the pocket ship hard enough, on purpose or accidental, how well does the lead in the hull works towards righting the boat?  I assume if it goes turtle you are lost but how much of a heel will it realistically recover from?  Can it break the surface tension of the sails if it goes 'half way' to turtle?

RE: How much will the Pocket Ship self right itself?

Nobody knows for sure. One has never been capsized. There is some theoretical data on the Pocketship forum http://www.pocketship.net/phpbb/ 

According to the stability curve thr righting moment peaks at about 80 degrees.
