Why would you be sailing for long periods at 40 degrees? Think it's probably time to reduce sail. You might actually move forward as opposed to sideways Generally, I think anything much over 20 degrees is excessive. Hard on the boat, sailors and counter productive. Anyway, I certainly didn't have the intake out of the water
