Many years ago, we had an O'Day Day Sailer II. It was equipped with roller reefing for the main, but the main was sheeted mid-boom.
That meant you had to have an optional "claw" to fit over the roller reefed main, to which you'd reattach the sheet.
As has been suggested any times here and other threads, practice reefing WAY BEFORE you might need it.
Have fun,
Paul
