All depends on the beam dimensions of the boat... and if the angle that the clew makes with the boats centerline is somewhere near 10 degrees. On narrow boats obviously you need to let the barberhauler go 'out' but on beamy boats the barberhauler normally 'come in'. ..... and the 'usual' in or out typically will be at ~10° away from the centerline from the tack point.
