What headsails are you flying?

In the upper Chesapeake (i.e. Severn River to Baltimore to Rock Hall), what headsails are you using and when? I have a 100 and a 135. I'm compelled to put the 135 on from the start in April-May and just use that for the entire season. Pearson 35 CB/Skeg and a 4'9 to 7'9" draft, 14k lbs.

David,

We have a similar size, weight boat aslo with a k/c of 4'6-8' draft. We fly a 135 in the colder heavier months of March, April, Oct, Nov and Dec. In the warm/ hot months we fly a 155

You roller furling guys are spoiled. Just pick the one that fits for the conditions of that day. Honestly, how long does it take to change a headsail?

I keep a 135 on the furler in summer and a 100 the rest of the year and offshore. I also have a small staysail and a big asym.
