Yeah, I think for any specific boat in specific conditions this would be a 'trial and error' situation.. you'll need to figure out which configuration ultimately gives you the best VMG to weather... and what works best in flat water may not work best in chop.

But, as Irunbird said lets wait to see what the 'H's (Jeff and/or Rich) might have to say.
