Switching a sloop into a cutter, is it worth it?
I was wondering if putting on a 2 foot bow sprit to convert my 29' sloop into cutter, I imagine the boat would look nicer with a bow sprit but would be worth the trouble. I hear that cutters handle better in rough weather, is that true?
What are other advantages to cutters over sloops if any? I was talking to someone about this and he mentioned that my boat would only go so fast, my question is would it go faster in conditions that are less likely to make your boat reach its maximum hull speed if it were a cutter rather than a sloop?
