Jim - My primary reason for the inboard diesel is that we like to play in the water and I plan on installing a swim platform off the back, http://www.islandpacketphotos.com/pi.../Ad_854_8.jpg.
Sure, I don't mind you asking.

It's not a recommendation. The manufacturer's intentions have been gleaned from the brochures and reviews that indicate wings were the successsor to non-winged shoal draft options and the tall rigs were for light-air regions (or for sailors who want more sail up). The sailing characteristics I've gleaned anecdotally from various sources including this sailing board, other sailing boards, industry publications, etc.
