I tack the storm jib on behind the furler and hoist it on a halyard at the 2nd spreader [where I have backstays]. This sail's luff has an angle of about 60 deg.
The fact that you had it rigged and in the bag was wise. I do the same offshore with my staysail on a removable inner forestay. There is no way I want to lug a sail through the cabin and over the deck and try to hank it on AFTER things get bumpy. That's simply too late. It all gets rigged at the dock before we push off. That chore is on the list for next week in preparation for heading East in early November.
sail fast and eat well, dave
