OK, one other thing peeved me: the hollow leech on the in-mast furling main (which is an option). Why in the world, I wondered, would you saddle a beautiful, slippery, state-of-the-art Briand hull with an inefficient power plant? I know the supposed reason—ease of handling—but I don’t necessarily buy it, especially in this age of electric halyard winches. As an aside, the folks at Jeanneau say the rig’s “drive power” has been designed for the furling main—one of the company’s most popular options—and isn’t at all compromised. Even if that’s true, I don’t think the trade-off is worth it; at the very least, the roachless main offends my sense of aesthetics. When I hit Powerball, I’ll take the standard conventional mainsail, thanks.
