The sailmaker idea is a good one if you really have the need for a stormsail. also keep in mind that a twin groove headsail foil can not be used if you have the sail on the top furler swivel. if you put up a different sail before lower the one on the furler you will not be able to lower the first sail. twin groovefoils are mostly for racing when you don't use the roller feature. unless you have a furler with two halyards that are built into the foil. haylards on the mast will not work. some use the twin groove to run two headsails wing and wing when going down wind.
