Jees, my boat is 33 years old and it has fully battened big roach sails from a factory. The first American ever complete around alone sailed his open 60 with freestanding mast and people still calling the rig experimental... Freestanding rigs are part of American boatbuilding culture with very long history.
Everyone with freestanding mast know that while kedging mast needs to be supported with spare/jib/spinnaker halyard on opposite side.
