Journeyman came with weather cloths, which I have never seen fit to remove. The disadvantage is increased windage. The advantages are increased privacy in a harbor and protection from spray and wind. I also believe they cause the yacht to lie steadier when at anchor in a breeze, by increasing the windage aft.

I think I'd have them on my next yacht.

  1. I think you are likely right about the weather cloths allowing your boat to hang behind your anchor. I have experienced the same on other boats I have owned. On a larger boat that we cruised in a cockpit enclosure made a huge difference. Your boat is very attractive. Doug
