FTC, I would be interested in knowing the answer as I have purchased (and as of yet have not had a chance to get her even wet). It is my understanding (basic deduction) that they way the main sheet is set up with the three blocks although it does not apply pressure to the forward/tack portion of the boom that due to the relative short boom and ability to adjust boom through the main sheet blocks it is not as big an issue on FC. As to the preventer, I assumed (which you know how that works)that again due to the set up of the main sheet blocks you could "prevent" a lot of boom swing issues with the blocks set up.
BUT I am a novice to the FC so do not have a clue if I am correct and actually assume that I will find this is not the case:-) WOULD LOVE to get some feed back from FC old salts..... Gary, Anyone ??????
Peace and fair winds
