Re: Storm Jibs

Christopher,

That was very interesting.    It was especially relevant that they conducted their tests in high winds on a Contessa 26.  I have been considering adding an inner forestay like the one used in the test for use with my hank-on storm jib.  Thanks.

Re: Storm Jibs

I've got a reefable working jib.  I haven't really thought about a storm jib.  Be interested in comments as to whether a lot of people have them and if they do consider them a must have insurance policy.
