Discovered that Wave had optional "Multi-Sail Zipper-Reefing Sail" ... after actually seen this sail on cat. Owner never try to unzip bottom part and don't know how to use it. Is anybody have experience using such sail? How would you rig it? All way up or lowered on mast?

Thanks,

Without locking halyard? Wouldn't mast hook "eat" halyard in this case?

Routes enough to the side to avoid the sharp edges.

Sail area smaller and lower is the best for better stability and performance in high wind. Higher up would eat up the available mainsheet as well.
