Catalina EXPO 14.2. The original 14.2 was tippy when jibbing. Wondered if this has changed with the EXPO version. Also any other sailing characteristics that have changed. Is it possible to effectively use the main sail partially furled during high winds?

I tied a line around the mast-deck side. that line is inside of the tack downhole. when unfurling the line starts furling around the mast. you reef by releasing the outhaul line (clue) and pulling in the “reefing” line. there are two deck cleats one for the outhaul the other for the ‘reef’
