GREETINGS EARTHLINGS; If you go down the jackstay route have two lines from your harness so as you can attach to two points or one line always afixed to the boat when tranfering from point to point remember one hand for the boat and one hand for me ( I use jackstays on my boat) GO SAFE

As all ready mentioned I would rig a downhaul and jack lines first. Both can be done quite cheaply. I sail a contessa 26 with a hank on jib and find the downhaul to be invaluable. As well, having recently installed jack lines I shake my head over the fact that I went so long with out them.

I think that you could install;
- a downhaul for < 100$
- jacklines for < 200$(plus harness and tether)


There may be some minor complications installing the downhaul in your case, in that on my CO26 the downhaul passes thru the base of my stanchions as it works it's way back to the rear of the boat. I am sure this could be over come, you will just give some thought as to how you would route the downhaul line aft if you decide to go this route.

Do you have a bow pulpit? Is so, adding a few stanchions and lifelines is pretty inexpensive. Garhauer makes some nice stuff for a very reasonable price ($65 each with the base).

Only would work if you have an alloy toerail. The P26 does not. And even then all are not the same. My previous boat (Cal 9.2) had an alloy toerail with the base bolted to the rail BUT also were bolted to the deck through the bottom.
