The head of the sail would be attached to another swivel that rides up the foil, and your halyard attached to that.

I'd get up there and make sure that if there is a swivel attaching the foil to the mast, it is in good condition. Mine had separated by about a quarter inch, which was really scary. It also added friction, which made the sail hard to furl.

I took some photos of mine, but I can't seem to find them...

Dancamp,
Your system is a Hood Sea Furl Mark II. It is not a Hyde Stream Stay.
You do have a wire headstay. The "drum" you see on top is the halyard swivel.
When you get to the point of having to work on the system, PM me with a Fax # and I will send you the information.
