Re: Rigging up an A-sail
You definitely need to fly the chute outside the foretriangle, and you will need a spinnaker halyard. If you really want to do it right a small bowsprit should also be used, although plenty of cruisers fly them from the stem or anchor roller. If you are going to get a chute built new, then you should do it right!
