No, you are not being chicken! Low boom is, IMHO, sensible above 15 mph,
especially if you want to sail flat. According to DaList she will sail
under control at 28 mph, although 20 is as high as I have gone while lake
sailing. Stan provides all sorts of controls for you to trim the boat to
conditions. As an example, check out the second set of fairleads if you
want some pointing ability in stiff winds.
As an aside, I'm curious as to how others set their sails under various
conditions. Anybody willing to share your wisdom?
