Strip: Kayak Foundry

Has anyone here used the Kayak Foundry program to design their own boat? I know they have their own message board, but its not as "active" as this one- answers to questions are fewer & farther between.
I'm working on designing a small, 16' stripper. On the "math page" of the plan, by design gets a "stability factor" of 73. They recommend a stability factor around 100. How "bad" is 73? By comparison, does anyone know what the stability factor of an Outer Island is? Thanks.
