TDW, you didn't say if it was on a furler. I have a removable inner and it takes about 5 min to set up and another 5 to hank on the staysail. Not being a true cutter and I think the P42 is the same boat you’re not supposed to be tacking back and forth but staying on one tack for long periods. I will only set the inner when on passage or when the Genoa is too big for the conditions.
