Stay sail

Hi all, Being an old sailor, the idea of a stay sail intrigues me. Has anyone designed and mounted a mast for a stay sail? Are there considerations that need to be made if I decide to go ahead with this?

I can see where a stay sail could be an asset in beam seas to reduce rolling. I've also heard that they can give a bit of a kick while motoring in the right conditions. Also I imagine they could settle the boat at anchor.

Besides that, I think they look really cool
