A lashing is typically sufficient for staysail outhaul control (use 3-4 passes of dyneema 1/8" line and it will be easy to adjust even under load). The Harken big bullet block shown in the photo is probably undersize for the ultimate load the staysail will be expected to handle offshore. A tackle maybe used for compulsive fiddlers, however.

You will not have to release the staysail outhaul lashing when furling if you use a 'jack line' on the first few piston hanks at the luff of the sail.
JACKLINE: line running along lower luff of sail to which slides or hanks are attached. Facilitates reefing and furling of sail.

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!

See the full list here!
