It's actually not that big a deal to do that modification. It basically involves sewing a large rectangular flap to the luff of the storm jib on one side, that has hanks attached to long end of the flap. Then you attach a smaller flap to the other side and put rings to clip the hanks to on it—or you could sew on separate webbing straps with rings, but I think the rectangular flap would spread the load more evenly and act to reinforce the luff of the storm sail.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
