Every boat that cruises IMO needs an asymetric.
They are intimadating at first but when you get use to it They don't seem that big any more.
I highly recomend The ATN spinnaker sock it makes handling the chute so easy that you will actually use it. you always fear the storms but lets face it Calmes usally last longer especialy where you are.
And you have a better light air boat than me, we race against a catalina 30 on fun night. Cool boat.
We sailed under the chute from Key West to tampa thats a long time If we didn't have it we would have motored a lot more.

All boats are sinking it's just a matter of how fast.
