It makes a rather tame mini wing-and-wing, and it tacks fairly well. Really, a wee staysail is not used much, apart from when hard to weather.

I would leave it, as you will have to work on a new track if you remove it. You can paint them and they are good for leaning against when on the fordeck and useful things like that. It's too narrow to balance a beer on, even when in port.
