I have to add a bit more on My experience with the stay sail.

1. I have the jack line in my stay and I still need to release tension on the clew, if I have flatened the sail.

2. Any thing less than 1/4" line is hard on my soft hands.

3. The Jack line is required to be in place to allow my jiffy reefing system on the stay sail to work. The operationof the system is also done at the mast base = end of boom.

Ralph thanks for the routing as I am thinking about changing the stay to a roller furler type.

Hope this helps:
Norm

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!
