True. Because it's just me and I have a typical early '70s J of 15 feet over 33.5 LOA, I like to keep the main unreefed as long as possible, because it's quite doable to just use the main alone if things get squirrelly as it's tall and narrow.

Anyway, I use the 2 and 3 when alone because it's a drag to fold up the number 1 when the beer has yet to get cold.
