somers12 Thanks for the help. The attachment point where my jib/ genoa normally is placed is too close to the forestay point for the roller. I do have a ring further back. It's possible that this is what the previous owner used. I suppose that I'll have to make a judgement call as to whether this is strong enough to hold the sails.

Apparently I can't post a picture yet.

You would normally use the halyard for this type of system.
Attach the bottom to your tack ring or shackle. Usually just aft of where your headstay attaches.
Don't remove your headstay.
