An easy additional supply can be trapped from the relatively large surface are of the mast. Cut a rounded edge from the rim of a large plastic funnel so that it fits against the mast. On each side of the cut-out a bungee cord can attach to secure the funnel to the mast. Just above this funnel wrap a piece of hose around the mast with a bungee through the center of the hose securing it tightly to the mast. Leave the break where the hose ends meet above the funnel. This apparatus is easily stored; easy to keep clean; and the effluent from the funnel can be lead to any container. You may need to attach the device above your sail cover if it wraps around the mast. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
