42i side stay on the way of Genoa?

I've noticed that the side stays of the 42i attach to the side of the hull as opposed to the deck... any of you who are sailing this boats: Does this get on the way of a large Genoa?

Checking in with myself...?

Is there no one out there familiar with this boat or boats that have the side stay attached to the side of the hull?

Looking at some pictures, the upper shroud is attached at the deck edge, but the lowers are well inboard on deck. From the shots I've seen the genoa is intended to be sheeted in between the shrouds. A "large" genoa would, of course, run into the spreaders so I suspect that this boat is not intended for any more than a 130/135% headsail.

Many boats are being designed these days with the idea of keeping the headsails smaller - easier handling, smaller inventory. I expect the rig is designed to be powerful enough in that configuration.

Trying to fly a 150 would probably need to be sheeted outside the shrouds, creating a wider sheeting angle and possibly harming poiinting ability.

But I don't know the boat other than having been on a 36i and seeing some pictures.....

You might try asking on the Jeanneau Owners Forum

I would also tend to agree with faster's thoughts on the why the biggest sail is a 130'ish in nature. Most of the std boats have a SA/disp of about 18-19-1, with the P models into the 10 or 21-1 range. Usually enough SA for all but the most avid racer etc.

Perico,

I'm not familiar with the 42i, but our boat has outboard chainplates on the hull to which all the shrouds attach.

As Faster and Marty suggested, the fact that the upper shroud is attached outboard on the hull is not a disqualifier by any stretch. The designer factors all these variables when configuring the rig and sail geometry for the boat. Not knowing the boat, I would venture that it doesn't normally use a large genoa, or if it does the biggest ones sheet outboard and clear of the upper shroud and outboard chainplate.

In other words, the sails will be cut and set to avoid interference with the standing rigging. That is how it's done on our boat and most boats as a rule. I wouldn't worry too much about it unless you hear of problems.

I have a 42i and the largest headsail we can fly is a 128%. The phrf rating is based on this also. Only way around it would be to fly a Code 0 from the sprit in light air. We need 10 knots true for the 128 to come alive.

We have the 39i-Performance with outboard mounted shrouds. The largest jib that can be flown is a 122-125%. In light air, option is to fly a Code 0. Given the large main, the small jib is not problem. Most now performance boats are designed to with a large main/small jib which is easier in short handed sailing. FWIW, PHRF allows a 3 sec rating for a limited sailplan.
