I have a Niagara 35, large fore triangle. In > 15 knots, start of white caps on Chesapeake Bay, I routinely sail with just the roller furling 135 % genoa. As I have gotten more a senior citizen, I find removing the sail cover, hauling the main up, and replacing the sail cover not to be as much fun as just unfurling the genoa. I have no problems with unbalanced helm, etc. She sails at hull speed on just the genoa with 20 knots wind!
