Jay,
I'm a lazy cruiser and absolutely hate messing with the downwind pole for the jib. I run a line forward through a snatch block at the end of the bowsprit and back to the staysail boom. I can pull the staysail out as far as I want and run downwind with headsails on oposite sides pulling strong. Of course this makes her roll like a pig and a reefed main sheeted in a little helps or take it down and enjoy the ride. This is old fashioned stuff as most are taking off the staysail boom but its why I keep mine.
Lee
