I would check the condition of the storm jib and make sure everyone knows how it gets deployed. With a roller furling, it's got to be hanked on to an inner forestay or he's got to have something like the Gale Sail that goes over the furler, if the furling sail doesn't have to be removed.
I have a spare headsail that's on consignment at my sailmakers with a luff wire that fits my furler track, should you get to the New York area and need a spare, it might fit a 37 tartan nicely, the luff was a wee bit long for my 34.
Keep us posted. Best of luck, hope you get a good weather window.
