Sabreman, my last comments applied only to sailing to windward in light air.

With regard to a flat bottomed sled, it depends on whether tipping it in any given direction has the effect of reducing wetted surface. As I imagine a flat bottomed sled, tipping it one way or another probably wouldn't help.
