Hmmm... I would probably use a tack pennant (which is a short line that runs between the actual tack shackle and the tack of the sail), and allow the jib to go almost all the way to the mast. It makes seeing past the jib easier and reduces the chafe on the foot of the jib.
A jerrycan is another term for external portable fuel can. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_can
for more about it... "Jerry" comes from the fact that the German army used them quite a bit.
Normally, they were made of metal, but now are more commonly plastic.

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.
