Any comments?

It depends on the way you setup the bridle for the JSD. If you lead the bridle fair, you might not have any problems. I don't know how you plan on mounting the chainplates for the bridle and where they would be with respect to the windvane.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
