Jib

I know what to do, there are already inspection ports installed on my boat, I will use paracord and 2 maybe 4 pulleys, and 2 cleats to hold the main sheets, I don't need to modify the mast to accomidate it with paracord because it is so thin, I will use a metal tube as a bow spirit. I am unsure how to secure the bow spirit at the moment, any ideas?

Maybe attach a bowser under the bow handle and add some stays from the front of the Bowsprit to the sides of the hull.

I would imagine that adding jib will move the center of effort forward, changing the Sunfish’s penchant for weather helm to a boat with a tendency to lee helm.
