Re: How did your Pacific Seacraft do when the going got rough?

Glad I read this thread. We bought a PS34 this year that had the inner forestay removed, probably to make it easier to handle the big genoa on the roller furler. I've been talking to our rigging guy about adding a detachable inner forestay. The roller furler is difficult to handle in 20kts+ and we do not like the way the boat feels when the jib is reefed(too much power forward). It really seemed to me a staysail or storm jib on the inner forestay would solve the problem.
