Herring marinated in sour toddy might be a good starter. Watch out for falling eggs and be careful of ignition conditions.

B&G have this very expensive and temperamental bespoke system based on 1970's technology and hand built with typical British attention to detail:

Raising the sail isn't really the reason I'm thinking of going two part though - its getting sufficient luff tension when the breeze is fresh. Sometimes I really have to put some weight on the winch, to the extent I wonder about how long it will last.
