Actually, Jim, with some experience a symetrical chute is actually easier to handle shorthanded, is useful through a wider range of wind speeds and angles, and has less line involved. You can use a snuffer with either although I find that a snuffer really isn''t needed to singlehand a symetrical chute for a boat as large as a 38 foot fractional rigger.
