Cutter to sloop
I have a sloop on which an inner forestay and running backstays have been added. I beefed it up and made the inner forestay removable with an ABI lever quick release. I like it removable to ease tacking the genoa. I like the flexibility to put a storm jib on the inner forestay--since adding storm jibs to roller furling is hard. I also like the additional mast support of the inner forestay and runners in heavy air. To me this is a decent compromise. (All boat decisions are compromises).
