Exactally why I was asking. With my limited sail time and even more limited help I figured I'd get opinions first. I mean either its good for whatever conditions or its not I would think. Probably depends on the boat but we are talking Tartan 30 in this case. Now I have a ditch the 100 ofcourse and go 150, all the way over to the 110 is way more useful in most conditions. Hmmmmmm who do I trust more.
