w/a J of 11' and E of 9'. What happens to helm etc. if the E was extended to, say, 10' 6"? Or even 11'?

Sorry iPhone/iPad users, we are still waiting on Apple. :(Click the X in the upper right corner to make this go away
In general, I don’t agree. Without knowing the specific boat, there’s no way to say that 20% is optimal.So, on another forum someone posited that increasing foot length on masthead as opposed to frac rig would have less effect with an increase of ~20% being optimal.
Hit me back.
PNW is a light air venue. Reefing.Adding area up high affects heeling much more than area down low. Heeling will definitely load up the helm.
That's very kind of you to offer but, point is moot. After viewing boat's condition & mooring situation, not going forward with purchase.What is the P of the rig? I’ll run some area calculations for you, with typical roach curves for a cruiser, racer, and fathead mainsail.
But again, what performance are you hoping to improve with the new sailplan
Not so much as improve, per se, but change. As in increasing power of main while reducing size of fores'l to facilitate singlehandling of both. Ancillary gain is more projected area from main downwind.
