Flying an oversized spinaker

Hey all,

I searched the message boards quickly here but couldn't find what I was looking for. After a quick google seach to no avail I've decided to post my question.

I bought a 1977 Buccaneer 200. She came in excellant condition with main, jib, 150% genoa and a symetrical spinaker. I've never sailed with a spin before but I ordered the parts to set up the rig. I plan to add a sock but I'd like to see how this turns out...My I and J dimensions are 25.8' and 8.0'. The spinaker that came with the boat has a luff of 33.25' and a foot of 17.3'...

I'm aware that this sail is a bit () oversized...What's going to happen when I deploy this cargo-sized 'chute?

Thanks,
Matt
