So what happens if a preventer is attached in very heavy winds, and an accidental gybe occurs? Does the boat round up violently with complete loss of rudder, then a danger of capsizing?
Without the preventer, an accidental gybe in heavy winds could take out the boom, or any of the rest of the standing rigging. Not good.
