The bottom line is that to say, "Once at hull speed, any additional power (from more sail area, or greater lift of the existing sail area) will just be wasted..." is just plain wrong.
That's fine, go ahead and heel 45° so you can get an extra 0.1 kt of speed. We'll let his wife decide who's talking nonsense.
