'80 buccaneer jib luff/roller furler question

Last weekend I bought a 1980 Chrysler buccaneer (my 2nd). My other is a '79 so it has the PVC jib tube. This one just uses the furler, luff wire, and I believe a swivel on top. Does anybody have any history with these. I'm missing the swivel for sure, but with the mast raised, it looked like I had about a foot and a half between the luff wire and the deck. I don't even think a swivel and a stay adjuster would get it there. Is there an upper forestay?

Thanks!

Eric
