Re: Do roller-furling cruisers need a storm jib?
Don't try it with heavy weather because if the padeye is 1/4 of the way from the masthead you will need running backstays (rigged on the mast at the opposite side of the padeye) otherwise you can break your mast.
Oh? Even though the halyard runs through a block at the masthead before coming down to the padeye?
