Re: Balanced lug sail questions
Esingleman, I think you should be careful extrapolating from how well your sloop-rigged boat performs when it's got only part of its sail plan in action versus a how well a boat that is balanced and optimized for use without a jib in the first place can work. Not only would ten-thousand Lazer sailors disagree with your above statement, but I do too.

Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
