OK my almost new to me 393 has been a pleasure cruising southern NE. I'm preparing to haul next week but already thinking ahead to next season. The one thing that was part of her inventory but I haven't played with is her North Sail Gennaker. I've been surfing Youtube for how to's. Never had one before and to be honest have been a bit intimidated by the thought. So my question comes down to the use of shackles. I saw the video attached and liked his demonstration. My question is what kind of load would the tack have so that I size a Tylaska T-series shackles appropriately? Also, what are your opinions on how he douses the sail? Looks like a safe way to handle it.
