Subject: Inner for storm jib
In reply to: Bill Miller 's message, "Staysail, running back stays" on - Monday - 07/ 2/12 - 10:43am


I just got myself a Mariner 31 a bit ago and am working on some upgrades for an off shore cruise! How do you rig your inner storm jib? Where do you attach the chainplate onto the mast and what chain plate do you use? Do you need to reinforce it with running backs?

Thanks for all the help in advance!

I have added an additional inner fore stay between the main mast and main fore stay. I run a small heavy storm jib of only 80 sq. ft. and it has a self tacking track just ahead of the main mast. I don't feel running backs are necessary for this sail since I reef down when it's blowing hard enough to run the storm jib. I can give measurements if you need more info. Bill

I have a M32 and I want to also install an inner storm jib and you mentioned you have dimensions. Would you also please forward them to me? I greatly appreciate it and Thank You in advance!

I ordered sails from this guy and was the best deal. Send them an e-mail for what you need and they will get it done for you. You don't need a inner stay for the storm jib, you can use a sleeve that goes around the jib without the need of changing sails.

As Ardi mentioned, you can use a sleeved storm jib if you have a roller furled jib and not a hanked on type. My inner stay is detachable and is lashed to a main lower shroud when not in use. My sprit and bow pulpit is my own design since my M31 had none when I bought her. My dimensions are probably different than yours. I do like the idea of a inner forestay. It's nice to have added Main mast support in my opinion. Set up your inner so that it runs parallel with the forestay. Looks better that way. Good luck with your project.
