Rigging a gennaker on a C&C 24
So I'm thinking of getting a gennaker for my little tub to help me keep moving on our typical low wind days here. I don't currently have any spin/gen rigging, although I believe there are two sheaves at the front of the mast, both inside the forestay.
Is there any reason I can't use the existing jib halyard as a gennaker halyard, and then put a second one up there at a later date? Obviously I would have to gybe the genn on the inside which I understand isn't the preferred method. I'm guessing that a proper spin halyard is going to mean fabrication of brackets etc at the mast head?
Anyone with a C&C24 running spins/gens with nice photos of how its attached at the various points?
