Anyone rigged a removeable inner forestay for a staysail? I have looked at two options, either a 'solent stay' arrangement very close to the current forestay, for a hanked-on 100% jib, or a true staysail setup with a 3/4 height forestay.
The second option I think would require running backstays? At least it seems it would be advisable. So I lean towards a solent stay arrangement. Anyone tried it? I can see how I could set up a good mounting arrangement in the anchor locker, but wondering what I would need to do up the mast. Also, has anyone tried a synthetic stay (vectran?) or just used wire?
