Re: spinnaker size
Just to be sure you are familiar, there is a lot more to an AS than luff length. Where the draft is located, how deep it is, the cut of the foot, etc, etc. There are countless versions of AS sails, multiplied by the various different cloth weights.
Be sure you are very clear with your sail maker on the intended purpose for the sail and be sure they are very familiar with your boat. Is it all about downwind in light air, as your OP suggests? If so, the ideal sail for that condition would not allow for coming up on the wind much and could tear if the wind kicked up over 15 knots. If you want something more versatile, you will give up some downwind and/or very light air performance. Everything is a trade off.
