Well that was my concern, was how can I use storm sails with the roller furling, because I've seen the furling sails on the boat and they aren't tough enough for the evil stuff, they'd just get blown out. Could you point me to some information I could read about a removable inner forestay ? How would you rig that up ?

Randy thanks to you as well!
