HS...you're probably right. I just like everything heavy for cruising and I know that millions of boats don't have loosefooted mains so I figure there must be a reason for that and resist change...even when new materials and technology probably make this a better option! I wonder if North would recommend this same configuration for bluewater cruising? Fireman...ask them that pls. whatever you decide to do! Thanks...
