We have a spare jib halyard on Enchantress. That may be what you have. On the jib I would think that given the winds in SF bay a 110 would be fine. We sail with the 110 and a full or single-reefed main and get good speed. We have a 135 which we have used in light winds here in the Chesapeake. But we got gennaker we use instead as it doesn't have to be attached to the forestay. Storm sails also came with the boat but look like they've never been used.
We use snatch blocks on each the toe rail. Seems to work just fine. If I were still racing I would have put in tracks but as I'm not...
We had a new dodger and bimini made but to protect from the sun and heat rather than the cold.
Your boat sounds great. What will you call her
