The verdict came in from the designer..... reinforce (install a bulkhead) just aft of the chainlocker then use a tang for the stay from the bulkhead just foreward of the windlass. run the sheets to the forward portion of the current tracks (completely solves any structural considerations) and see how things work....keep my 130% jib to retain light wind performance (currently GREAT). The upwind performance problem is partially because of the soal keel but mostly because of the in-mast furling, no roach, out of shape mainsail. So I am considering a verticle batten sail. Anyone have thoughts on this?
