I want to add a staysail for more flexible sail plans, mainly something to put up in heavier weather
. I would also like something lighter to put up on runs that could be poled out to supplement my genoa
I am looking for the best and simplest ways to do this. I have a place to attach it on the deck
, and have the spare halyard
, I have seen many options, but am not sure what the simplest way to handle the luff of the sail. Id rather not do a wire, and prefer a line luff. I don't want to buy a continuos furller, because it seems a bit much.
The idea I have is illustrated below, can this work? has it been done before? is there a better way? If you have ideas, please state what size and type of line could work or has worked.
Thank you much
