The image on page 50 clearly shows the thrust from one of the engines passing through the sector field.  If it can get out, can it also get in?  If so, would a decent tactic be to zip by an enemy ship, from across or beneath, and roast the decks with jetwash?
Might be able to ruin the sails and rigging of the enemy ship in the same pass.

An interesting notion. My guess is that the thrust stream is composed of tachyons, which do indeed pass through the sector-field both ways. But they have no effect on a ship's hull or crew. They might mess up someone's sails, though.
