Re: PSC 37 How many have done away with staysail?

I love the flexibility of having the staysail ready to go if the wind is going to be above 20kts and find myself using it often, so much so that I am having the hanked on staysail converted to use a furler. With the stay in place, without the sail, it can be problematic tacking with my 150 genoa, but when the staysail is up, it is quite easy to tack. I am hoping that my new set-up with a furled staysail will allow easier tacking of the genoa then just the bare stay.
