I have had them on 2 cruising boats and didnt like them at all, other than they make a great roll stopper at anchor
if you can hoist them high enough. I only used the trysail in anger on my 37 foot steel sloop
and it did not set well and would not get the boat
to tack in the heavy wind
. If you have to claw
of off a lee shore a third reef or very deep second reef will set much better and hopefully get you upwind. Other people love them but I was un-impressed and would never spend the money
on one. Just my opinion. ____Grant.
