sandboy is on a distinguished road
I have now seen the spiro system on a 505 skiff and now know how it works not only does it self launch but retrieves it as well plus when you gybe you just fire the kite off the pole it retrieves itself back along the boom you already have the guy in hand you clip it on the pole self launch the pole on the opposite side never needing a foredecky to go forward of the cockpit I'm going to the importer to Australia as it look's heavy enough for my yacht but I'm surprised a heavier version has never been made as the system is so simple and would work on all small yacht's like mine
