Re: Passport 41

I second the idea of a Solent stay. Makes a great deal of sense to me. Our boat has a removable inner stay that I can attach a staysail or storm jib too. Staysail is rarely used, the storm jib never been used. Having a tall, heavy 90% jib ready to pull out would be very handy even if it meant that tacking the big jib would be a problem. Not sure that having the Solent stay removable would be a big help. You need to put it and its sail somewhere.
