The 430e is designed around a 9/10ths rig with two spreaders and a full-battened main. All sail-control lines, including both sheets, lead aft, through a covered channel, to line stoppers and a pair of winches on either side of the companionway. The boat we sailed had an electric winch to starboard that made hoisting the main a snap. Under way, however, I found it helpful to have another set of hands to trim the sails, since it was some distance from the wheels to the winches. Using the autopilot when you go forward to adjust trim would be an option, of course. And in addition to those on the cabin top, winches also sit just forward of each wheel for the optional 105-percent genoa and the 140-percent gennaker, so I believe that sheets could be rerouted if one were singlehanding the boat. And speaking of sails, I'd definitely spend the money for the optional ones to improve performance off the wind. On a run back toward the Port of Miami, it didn't take long before we resorted to the engine.
