The storm staysail should be about 70 sq. ft., of 9 to 10 oz. dacron, and triple stitched. It served Satori very well during "The Perfect Storm". Better to fly this sail on the staysail stay, rather than out at the end of the bowsprit on the headstay. You should set up running backstays at the same time to properly support the mast where the staysail stay attaches.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
