Stand-ups are ok but not really necessary. Tend to your sheets and keep them
trimmed (lazy sheet as well) and the muck tends to go away. Take you current
genoa blocks apart and install the spring on them. Harken and Rostan both sell
springs separately. Save the money for better or new sails!!!!
Unless you are looking for the vintage look (Hello Gord) Garhauer is impossible
to beat for quality and price. Their stuff tends to be bulkier but does the job
very well.
