We have a very nice curved track for sheeting the staysail to on the foredeck, but the sailmaker who built the sail did a very poor job of building it to fit. I believe if I had a track or even a pad eye or two on the cabin top we could achieve a much better sail shape.
I'm not at all sure that we can put track or pad eyes on the cabin top as there is no structural integrity for those sorts of stresses, no matter how big the backing blocks.
