Ah, gives me a thought. This really depends on your sail layout.

Our main (581 sf) is very small, by comparison to the genny (866 sf). The foot on the genny is about 26 feet long and can't find that much unobstructed space. By comparison, our main's foot is only 19 ft and will layout on the foredeck between the mast and pulpit.

A fractional rig with a jib, for example, might be a very different experience.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
