When the inner jib stay came down, part of the roller reefing broke. While I might be able to fix the roller reefing gear, I have one more of these units aboard controlling the yankee jib (outer jib), which I'm more interested in keeping spare parts for than I am in using for this sail. This sail, the inner jib (or trinquette or fore-staysail) rarely gets reefed--it is either set fully or furled (when it gets windy, I am using the storm jib). So I decided to convert it to a hanked-on sail.

In the picture, Jordan is sewing webbing into the sail to hold shackles, which we are using as hanks (can't buy hanks here) to attach the sail to the stay. The webbing was cut from spare sail ties, and, for strength, it is both sewed and glued (with '5200' polyurethane adhesive sealant) in place.
