I would imagine it depends on how much roach. Look at the boat with the boom at the centerline and see how much roach you can add without the sail hitting the backstay. You might be surprised. If it over laps by an inch or so, that is not likely to cause any problems. You (or the sailmaker) can add chafe protection to the batten pockets for any overlap wear.

Too much roach:



Smarter than you think, they can be trained to helm for short periods. If the light is dim, you can mix them into your rice and make believe they are beans.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

High in protein as well...just remember to cook thoroughly...I hate when they wiggle when you're trying to eat them.

If you don't race, don't even bother. If you do decide to add roach, add a ton, and crane the backstay. Adding a little, will do little.

Does that DS 20 even have a backstay? If not, roach it up!

This is where you talk to the sailmaker, and ask. If you have as said, a shallow roach, you can have the SM add enough such that the sail does NOT touch the back stay, added a bit of SA, helping a small amount granted in speed etc. Add a couple of full battens at the top, and you will have a better sailing boat.

I recently got a UK Tapedrive for my boat, I ended up with a main that overlaps by about 2" for 2' or so, a PITA for light winds as mentioned, but last saturday in 30+ knots, not issues.......wait a minute, I had a double reef in, so that was my problem for lack of hitting!

In the end, there is more than one way to skin said issue.

The boat in your picture has some roach, or it wouldn't have battens, I think.
