Re: Main Halyards - Back to cockpit or keep at mast?
I don't know if a spinnaker would work (for me or the boat). I have the hardware necessary, but a 40' luff and 13' J meas (stem to mast) would make it an expensive experiment. A used asymmetrical spinnaker of the size my boat would take is close to $1000. I'm not racing and it would only gain a couple of knots in really light air. For a drifter I have a 180% (39'luff 23'foot) roller genny. I am concerned about space, in the boat and my bank account
