Why no storm sails?

S/V Discovery has a rather short 12 foot boom. With the second reef the area of the main is smaller than a storm trysail. Additionally there is no storm jib sail mainly because I can unfurl a portion of the genoa.

I am not a big fan of the ATN Gale sails and the like. IMHO they are more of a gimick than a useful safety kit.
