Djodenda,
Every boat that cruises IMO needs an asymetric.
They are intimadating at first but when you get use to it They don't seem that big any more.
I highly recomend The ATN spinnaker sock it makes handling the chute so easy that you will actually use it. you always fear the storms but lets face it Calmes usally last longer especialy where you are.
And you have a better light air boat than me, we race against a catalina 30 on fun night. Cool boat.
We sailed under the chute from Key West to tampa thats a long time If we didn't have it we would have motored a lot more.

What I've noticed while cruising in the Puget Sound is that the wind is either blowing too strong on your nose, or too little downwind...

On the really light days, I can move upwind pretty well, but just slat around getting back home...

I figure the asymmetrical will allow me to work my way upwind and reach back with the chute... I don't have enough crew, or funding for a symmetrical chute, and figure the asymmetrical will work.

I had planned to buy one this winter, but wound up spending the cash on a new genoa and dodger...

Looks like you had a great trip. I look forward to my first Caribbean cruise someday....

If you can find a used symmetrical spinnaker you can tack it to your forestay, over the rolled headsail, with an ATN tacker or a North tack strap. You could even do something with a short rope to the bow roller. The size and set isn't as critical as with a white sail and you can save a lot of money by not getting a new sail custom made for your boat.
