It would really help if you said what kind of boat you have... if it is a masthead rig or fractional rig will affect the measurements...and your ability to fly the chute. Also, it would help if you said whether it is an asymetric or symmetric spinnaker... I am guessing asym, since you describe it as a cruising spin.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Think that's gonna be a bit big... might be able to fly it... but I think it is a bit long for your boat. The luff measurment for the Columbia 7.6, based on the 33' ISP and 10.7' JSP measurements from mauriprosailing.com end up with a 34.5' distance or so. Do you have a bowsprit to fly it from???
