Thanks for your replies. My boat is a C&C 36. I don't think the pole is set up for dip pole gybes. There is no line attatched to the mast end of the pole leading up to the top of the mast . . . only a topping lift at the foward end. These things are also missing: a spin halyard and block at the top of the mast for the halyard. We are just launching the boat tomorrow, and won't be sailing with the spinnaker any time soon, I was just up late with my mind wandering.

I get what happens up front with the end-to-end pole, but how are the sheets/guys run in the cockpit? led back through the blocks and both crisscross to use opposite winches?

Thanks again!
