Lose the flybridge I don't see it that way. My flybridge is set way aft and as such with the sort mast I have in mind I will still have a very considerable yet low staysail. Low COG is one of the great strengths of this boat and that would continue with the low cut very horizontal sail. The foredeck area is very large and considerable sheet could be flown. The draft is nearly 5' and I'm confident that after I run it by a NA the squat

mast I envision would allow for no more heel then she often "enjoys" in some conditions. In fact the idea is less heel "roll" not more.
