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.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
