Guess it one of those things if you ask three people you get four opinions. Picking up the boat this sunday so will not be dependent on other folks opinion in a few weeks about ease of use. Will take a few years before having an opinion about wear. Still as line goes through grommets and lies softly on sail not too worried. More concerned the sail will likely fold in just about the same place every time and that maybe hard on the fibers/coatings. spoke with lofts in MA and Cali about dutchman. Said harder to set up right and needs to be set up right to function correctly. if not done correctly it's a headache.
So true about the multiple suggestions of things which work when rigged properly
