This may seem like a dumb question, but you folks have my curiosity aroused.
From the OP's description, I understand that the sail is intended to reduce or eliminate sailing-at-anchor. I have seen ketches and yawls use their mizzens for this purpose very effectively. Hell, I've even seen commercial fish boats use something similar.
So, how does this get rigged on a sloop-rigged boat? In my case, how would I rig something like this for a split backstay? Finally, can I just go down to my friendly chandler and buy one, or are there limited manufacturers/distributors?
This seems like a really good idea if it isn't going to cost an arm and a leg.

It's not my fault they named a movie after our boat
