I am a fan of boom brakes. I had a Dutchman on the main of a Corsair F31 and it allowed me to gybe the asymmetric single handed while ignoring the main, very valuable on a boat with a rotating mast!

The Witchard is less adjustable but once you get it right it should work fine.

The extra lines was the price I paid for the convenience of the controlled gybe. Once I had the boom brake set correctlyI did not use a preventer.
