It's really a choice of boat/rig first... The hoops(or equivalents) look much more traditional and would be more in keeping with the intent, look and character of these types of boats.
Ultimately I think a "proper" sail track would be more efficient, but that's rarely an issue on boats of these types... and may well spoil the 'look'.
