Re: whisker pole or spinnaker pole

Thanks faster. We took her out this past weekend and she handles real nice in light air, but the head sail kept having a hard time staying inflated. We had a tail wind and were trying to go wing on wing. It was tough. So next time I will try to hold it open with the pole. Iím at a marina now and getting some great advice on the on deck stuff. I had a guy next dock climb aboard and as he did he told me that the rigging was way too loose. He helped me toon it up using this gauge that the last owner left in the boat.
Sorry for all the uneducated questions. I am learning a lot from this sight. It is packed full of information. I have been using the search function constantly. Talk to ya soon. And thanks again.
I will post a photo of how she looked this past weekend.
