Someone is misguiding you...

It is true that to use a asymmetric furler you need some room between the tack point for the asymmetric and the headstay (in front of the foremost stay/ furler). So if your headstay is terminated at the end of the boat (bowsprit/stem) you need add or extend the bowsprit.

But moving the existing ones - why?
