ChrisK, if you are going cruising with that boat you would be much better off getting rid of the staysail boom, getting a roller furler for it and rigging sheets aft.  You will use the sail much more, it can be reefed as a storm jib and you will not have to worry about it hitting you if you go forward in a storm.  I did mine years ago.
 There has been much written on this subject in the past.  Try doing a search for the posts.  Dave
