Re: downwind sail for PSC31
This is basically a spinnaker halyard problem. You will have it with any spinnaker arrangement unless you are going to use the same halyard for your genoa and spinnaker.
The normal solution is to install a Spinnaker Bail at the masthead. If you have the LeFiell mast you can get one here:
And using the genoa halyard is not a good idea.

The furler on the bowsprit without sail, the 1:2 tack line led back to the cabin top winch so I can adjust the tack hight and pull the furler out.
The sail get attached to the furler before
the furler is attached to the tackline.
