V-42 - Ketch Rig.. opinions?

Does anyone have any opinions regarding the Ketch rigged V-42?

Given that its main mast is around 14 feet shorter than the original. It would seem to me to be a somewhat "neutered" version compromising both light air and windward performance in exchange for the ability to sail under lower bridges.
The light at the end of the tunnel are no longer the headlights of the oncoming train......yippee
