Have you added a inner forestay to your amel?
I read your post and it seems to be about your previous boat. I have added
an inner forestay to my previous boat also. My problem is with the roller
furling main I do not know how to affix the running backstays or the fitting
on the mast for a stay. Adding a knee and bracing for the tack of the stay

I wrote about this on 15 October, message no 1691. Looking at that I
see that I did not say that you would have to get a new chain plate
made to be fixed through the foredeck and secured to the bulkhead.
If you use it for a storm jib the sheets would have to come inside the
main shrouds. If you are using it for a staysail you would probably
need to have a new sheeting track inside the main shrouds but your
sail maker would be able to advise you where etc.
