Spinnaker halyard ?

Hi ya'll I am very close too bringing the 30 cat TR to Pasadena and am curious about the rigging of my spin halyard. I have a heafty block to put up top AND two jib halyards that are internal. Is it advisable to run one of them out and through the spin block or keep it on the internal? I am running a new harken cruising furler MK I???

it looks as though I will be just shy of a straight shot to the block with a 5 deg deflect to get it OVER the forstay pin. Also will the block interfere with the roller furler?

tommays will become famous soon enough
On the boats i sail with internal halyards the spins exit above the head stay and the jib below

On my Cal with external the spin block is mounted on a masthead crane to keep it above and away from the Furler

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Mastheads come in all kinds of configurations and setups. Maybe you could take a digital picture or two and post them.

You definitely don't want to use an internal genoa or jib halyard as a spinnaker halyard even if you run it up through a spinnaker block. If that was what you were suggesting.
It would probably chafe through the very first time you used it.
Not good.
Just run the spinnaker halyard external. Keep it fouled behind the spreaders when you aren't using it and it should be well out of the way of the furler.

The best setups are when there are two spinnaker cranes set on angles on either side of the masthead. If it's internal, the exit (entrance) plate is about three feet down the mast.

Can't seem to attach pictures either, but what you can do is put them online at a free photo hosting site, like flicker (uses a yahoo account) or picasaweb.google.com (uses a gmail account). Then you can put a link to the picture in a post here.

I think

I saw a Smackdaddy post saying that pics were not working. For your spin halyard, it really does need to be above the forestay. Otherwise you can do exciting things to your spinnaker and/or forestay fittings at the hounds when you gybe. We rigged a Harken block on a swivel for the spinnaker halyard on our Soling and ran the line through it down to both sides of the mast, outside, so that we'd be able to set to port or starboard without having to throw the (internal halyard) end around the forestay. Attaching the block to the mast may be the hardest part for you. Is there a tang or exit hole where you would need it? Bolts or screws may pull out or shear - make sure they're hefty enough. Shackling the block in place is the best, if you can something good to attach it to.

I am going to look at a "hoop" to put up top today, I have discovered that I will need to keep the halyard outside the mast am fine with that. I just wanted as clean a look and feel as possible but it is a 25 year old boat and was not designed with all the goodies that a newer boat has!
