Don't have one, but there have been many times I wished we did. Full keeled cruiser, 28K lbs loaded, pretty high freeboard, roller furled genoa and a boom flaked staysail -- it all adds up to "high adventure" when maneuvering in close qtrs. I'd happily trade off the minor loss in speed for the reciprocal loss in anxiety. Just saying.
