The valiant has a larger fore triangle becaus its rigged as a true cutter the mast is steped further aft in the boat than a boat that is sloop rigged with a removeable inner fore stay. I shopped sails real hard looking for a 110 for my boat last sping and quantum was the what I considered the best of all the different quotes That I got. go to their web sight and read If nothing else its very informative about cloth and constuction techniqes. they are very blunt and not affraid to name names. Like the folks above the condition is more important. Sounds to me that the boat is set up well and if the sails are seviceable and you added a asymetric the boat would be ready for any thing.
