Passagemaker: Wooden Mast - Topping Lift/Brailing Line

I finished my PM just weeks before heading down to the USVI for the season, so only have taken it out a handful of times.  I'm excited to be doing the Salish 100 this summer when we get back.  This means that I need to explore options on how to sleep aboard and row more efficiently.  I was thinking that a topping lift would allow the boom to act as a ridge pole for a boom tent and also pull the boom and mainsail up out of the way while rowing like a brailing line.

Thoughts on if this sounds reasonable and additional hardware to install on the mast (cheek block and cleat) would be appreciated.
