Inner forestay on Irwin34

Hi, am interested in your post about an inner forestay. Sounds like someone was worried about a storm jib location and mast stability issues. How was it fixed to the deck? Was there underlying support in the V berth? Just bought a a 1980 34 citation and don't see why it would be added. I wouldn't keep it very tight, but it may be a bonus someday! How is Maine? I want to move there asap.

It looks like an add-on system and I don't see an inner forestay on the line drawings for the citation. If someone who has used his forestay could enlighten me it would be appreciated. It sure seems in the wrong place with the roller furling.
