Terry,
I carry 3 headsails on my w32 Patience and like the option of hanking on another sail if i blow out one or just need a different size. Another way is to use a downhaul on your jib. Run a line from the mast through a small block at the jib tack point. Dont run it through all the hanks as it will bind up on you. Just run it free up to about the second hank down from the sail head. As you release the halyard to lower the sail haul in on the downhaul. My 2 cents worth-you will find your own way. Lee
