    Masthead Spinnaker?

    Great question, I would not recommend going to a masthead kit with a standard rig using the original OEM mast section. It is 4'-6'' to the masthead. The amount of unsupported mast and the softness of the OEM mast section scares me a lot. I have modified my OEM standard rig to a tall rig but I...

    Is anyone interested in having some one-design racing on the East Coast? There are ways to make for differences in set-ups.

    Halyard identification

    If you have gone to a Harken ESP furler then you must use the jib halyard, and it is recommended that a halyard restrainer is used as well. This will be mounted about 6-8'' below the bearing surface of the headstay, so I believe that would be 4-5'' below the bearing surface of the jib halyard...

    Halyard identification

    The top halyard is the Spinnaker halyard, the lower sheave is for the jib/genoa. It looks like it's missing?

    Masthead Spinnaker?

    Oh, forgot to mention your approximate sail area is 350 sf. ISP=28.0 J=8.1 (8.1x1.80=14.40) 28.0 x 14.40= 403 x .89 =358 sf Basic calculation for standard spinnakers

    Masthead Spinnaker?

    Add this to your equation in 15 tws the boat will not handle a kite with the wind forward of 135 degrees. So with that said the wind will be aft of that. At this point, the backstay will start supporting up the load of the sail. I think all of us that have an understanding of this topic have...

    Masthead Spinnaker?

    I have a 37'' taller than normal standard tall rig I have laid it over buried the winches underwater and with a (J70) asymmetrical in 25 knots true! My spin halyard is 15'' above the jib it won't break! I've tried to break it. The Factory location of the tall rig spin halyard is 12'' above...

    Masthead Spinnaker?

    Going to a masthead spinnaker on the standard would not be advisable. The rig is barley large enough as it is. You can lift the halyard up about 15'' MAX. that would be fine. I have thought about doing the following with my boat before I went BIG! Raise the standard headstay up 2'-0'' it's...
