Just curious to what folks have to say about the wishbone booms on boats like the Nonsuch. What are the advantages and disadvantages? I sailed wind boards for years and never thought about putting one on a larger boat. I see advantages in sail shape, size, and possibly reefing. I have never taken a close look at such a boat but am curious what others think about wishbone booms.

Interesting stuff. Your point about all eggs in one basket seems like an important trade off if you are a cruiser but no big deal if you are just weekend sailing on the bay. They might be a great boat if you are a charter captain. They have room on deck and simplicity so you can watch the safety of your clients and not worry about trimming all the sails etc. I have no desire to get one but have been curious about some of the advantages and disadvantages. Thanks for the great info.
