I've just gotten hold of a used furler jib for a Hobie 16. I am not sure whether to rig it with an additional forestay or not.
Do you rig the furler jib with a forestay, or do you leave the forestay off completely with the furling jib?
I know that when using the regular jib, the forestay holds the mast when the jib's not rigged. I guess you'd leave the furler jib on the boat unless you take down the mast?
