It certainly sounds like you have a valid point. I'm sure on a reach, it pushes the boat nicely. Is the helm relatively neutral or is there a lot of weather helm. If it's nearly neutral, than the sail(s) are probably "blown out" with that much sail forward. I have a late 60's CCA boat that balances beautifully with a 110. We pretty much leave the 150 below unless we're racing.
