Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

Jeff- From #90, the context is :
"Considering, the suggestions to consider retaining either a Cutter or Ketch rig, The while both rigs have virtues in some applications, both would be inconsistent with the hull and keel as it is evolving. It is important to go back to the decision loop thought process. Both cutters and ketches are at their best in boats with lots of drag for their stability."

I read that as "drag for their stability" but I think you are meaning the rigs are better off for the stability they create in boats that have lots of drag or inertia and as such are slow to accelerate?
