Re: Whisker Pole details
I have the LC10-18 UXP, and it works great, but I'd have to say I wouldn't like to manhandle the sizes larger than that. A mast track would be a necessity. As it is, if you do it forespar's way (put it over furled jib sheet, then unfurl the jib), there is no need for any force beyond lifting the weight of the pole.
