cal 34 - double headsail modification
I''m guessing but - is what you want to deal with here is providing for an effecient, easy to use low sail-area setup for offshore use in high winds? That would be provided by installing an inner forestay on which a small jib or storm jib can be set. IF that''s where you want to go, you''d need to get some one to engineer an attachment point and reinforcement for the inner stay''s foredeck connection.
If this ain''t it, then beats me...
