The Gale Sail from ATN is one alternative. Or you can setup a solent stay, which, unlike a normal inner forestay, generally doesn't require the use of running backstays.
BTW, converting a hanked on sail may or may not be worthwhile, as some hanked on sails are cut wrong to fit a furling unit and will have poor shape because of that.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
