I have sailed on a 48' cutter with a 150 genoa. While running, or on a reach, we used the staysail. When beating or close hauled, we furled the staysail and brought the genoa out to 150 as if we were a sloop. It seemed to work for us. So I agree that a cutter rig does offer more versitility that a straight sloop.
