It is possible to convert most sloops to a cutter rig with a solent stay. There is a good article on this modification in the current Sail Magazine. It is removable.
Garhauer makes a nice pole which you can put the wind genrator or which is made for boats with sugar scoop transoms. Comes with detachable engine hoist.
