Just for note by others really as this is an old thread.

I sail nearly always singlehanded and aft sheeting is much preferred by me. I can handle both sails almost perfectly with aft sheeting. With centre mail I would run out of hands.

Also regarding Jeremy’s last comment. My boat came with centre main, to swap to aft main I just swapped the blocks so the sheet came out on the transom rather than at the boom, two minute job, probably not technically correct but seems to work ok.

I’m not sure how you would sail singlehanded with centre main and have the same control?
