You know, most laymen complain of the elitist attitude of sailers. Reading this thread just reinforces that stereotype. Not everyone seeks perfection in sailing or finely tunes their boats for maximum performance. Many folks just sail, mostly by just feel, and their band of acceptable performance is very wide. There should be room for everyone, and the market will decide what it decides.
I saw people talking and showing a rig like this years ago and and thought then "It's about time!!"
Sailors are like humans. Slow to adopt change. Fearful of the unknown.
Who knows what is next.
