Re: If it's not luffing, it's helping?
can say that motorsailing increases speed and saves significantly on fuel. Also, you can motorsail much closer to the wind than you can sail.
That's essentially why motorsailors were created in the first place. You get a much smoother and less rolly ride as well
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
