I bet if you do a web search you can find a good used chute fairly cheap

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

You don't have to have an asym either Smack - a sym can be flown like an asym and it works pretty well. You generally get a much bigger sail as well - most asyms are only genoa size.

We flew a used 1/2 Oz. from my Columbia 43 that way on a friends Hunter 38. The Hunter was a frac B&R so it was WAY oversize (1400 Sq. Ft.) but it flew nicely and man would it pull.

Cost about $500 including rigging. We tacked it to the anchor roller with a short strop and would gybe it by swinging it all the way out & around the headstay and turning it inside out. You need REALLY long sheets to do it - we used double the LOD.

Lots of cheap fun.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Smack have you looked at the Doyle UPS on a top down furler or any of the code 0 sails on a similar setup. Good light air sails that can be sailed downwind or up to around 40 degrees (some claim higher).

Handling the sail on a furler from the cockpit would be easier than wrestling with a spinnaker if it's just you and the boys on board -- but cheap it ain't.

We were quoted $3,400 for a retractable bow sprit, furler and UPS sail for our 30.

The video on this page loads up three back to back videos on this combo.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Jim - thanks for the advice. I'll check it out.

I'm just wanting to keep it simple - and retractable sprit seems a bit much. But definitely worth a look.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Off to the yacht this weekend for some more project work. I'll do a write-up on this soon, but I've installed a very cool wireless nav system using the iMux. I can steer the boat with my iPhone. Heh-heh.

I'm getting close on the list of to-dos for the big trip. It's cool!

sounds like you have an interesting to do list if steering via your iPhone was more important to get done than other stuff

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Hey Smack,

Can you sail your boat from at home or office from your iPhone? If so, make sure your boss doesn't catch you!

Just saying
