Re: whisker pole or spinnaker pole

Much better with pictures.. the ring that the whisker pole is attached to seems dedicated to that function - and you have one on each side.

The ring on the sliding track (leading edge of the mast) is the one for the spinnaker pole. So in fact the setup allows you to fly the spinn with its pole (the one on deck) while leaving the whisker in the stowed position...

You really got a lot of good equipment on this boat. I'd stress again to do what you can to have someone with experience spend a day with you to sort it all out and set you straight on how to use it.
