Re: downwind sail for PSC31
"This is basically a spinnaker halyard problem. You will have it with any spinnaker arrangement unless you are going to use the same halyard for your genoa and spinnaker.
The normal solution is to install a Spinnaker Bail at the masthead. If you have the LeFiell mast you can get one here:
I have a spinnaker halyard...is it safe to assume I have the necessary hardware aloft, then, to fly another headsail? Seems so....
But go look at it. The spinnaker bale will be forward of the mast. The spinnaker halyard will not run over the sheaves at the top the bast. There is likely a block attached to the spinnaker bale that the spinnaker halyard is running thru.
