Adding a mast to an A27

I have a crazy idea of adding an mast to an Albin 27 Family Cruiser. I'm looking for design input. The idea is explained here:

Crazy A27 Mast Idea

The rig I'm thinking if using is a Catalina 22 mast and boom. The mast is cut down to approximately 20' feet. I will be running a rollerfurling headsail and a very very small main.

I've created a reinforced deck-stepped mast step. I want to use two upper stays and two lowers mounted to the cabin top using the original C-22 rigging & eye bolt arrangement. The fore stay at will go to the bow deck. I'm considering no back stay. Can I get away with this setup for "auxiliary" sailing?
