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

Soggy Paws,  thanks for the advice... however, I think, for at least a while, I will try using it.  I have spent soooo much money getting BOLERO up to cruising condition that springing for a roller furler on the staysail is going to have to wait a bit.  Again, thanks.
