I would get in touch with other Prout owners
You should be able to find a group. They are unique boats (cat, center nacell, cutter, aft mast) and have unique answers.
NautiG (no offence intended) is dead wrong. I've never sailed a cat that I could not tack in light airs, and I have sailed many, including Geminis. But, each has its own rules. Do not accept broad statements, as a Prout has practically nothing in common with a Hobie Cat, for example, and little in common with most monohulls.
