Basic diffeences between a cruising chute and a Geenaker ?

I agree with the comments by TSenator.I usually sail my boat single-handed.Recently I equipped my boat with an assymetrical chute,sock,and ATN tacker that attaches around the forestay,and tack of the chute.I can launch the sail by myself in minutes.I also have a racing symetrical chute that stays in the bag along with the pole clamped to the stanchions.I also agree with some of Jeff''s comments concerning the sailing angles to which the assymetrical chute is effective, but to me, having some use of a chute is better than having no use of a chute.
