Hi Fataux, my point is that the third clew eye seems to have similar effects than adjustable outhaul, but of course you can't change it when sailing so I wonder where the miracle is. On the other hand, if changing clew position has significant impacts on sail's behaviour (s-shape to c-shape) then you could design an adjustable clew eye mobile along the protruding part of the boom batten. Not sure it would replace adjustable outhaul, though. Racers may want both.
