How heavy is the cloth, and is it nylon or dacron? If it is meant to be an asymetrical light air sail, it is probably going to be nylon rather than dacron.
Also, does it have a wire luff or hanks?
If it doesn't have hanks or a wire luff for the roller furler, it would sounds like it is a screacher or drifter type light air sail—aka the crappy asymetrical. If you have pole, it should work quite nicely. A photo of the sail in question would help, or at least a better description of it....
It's a bit big to be a canopy... even on a 41' boat. You say your boat only has one masthead halyard, but does it have a separate, lower, jib/genoa halyard??

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.
