Be glad you didn't waste time trying to upload it. I tried adding Steely Dan's version of that song to my YouTube video of our BVI charter last January, and after all my effort mastering the audio+video on my computer, YouTube's spiders recognized the tune and deleted the whole video for copyright infringement. They have some pretty sophisticated audio-recognition software running over there.

Nice find on the asym!

Couldn't you use a Twing line on the sheet to pull it down and away from the boom?
Twing is what we seem to call it up here. A floating line with a block on a spinnaker guy or sheet that pulls it down closer to the deck.

I'd run the sheets aft, through a block at the stern and back to the winch.

You can't see it in the video, but they are run aft to a block near the transom then forward to the winches. I fly a symmetrical spinnaker so I do have twings and a complete set-up - just trying to figure out the correct trim and sail shape.

I enjoyed the video and watching you pull that off.

Yeah, the same thing happened with my solo ocean spinnaker video with Wham playing on a radio in the background. I admitted the copyrighted content and they left the video up:

Re: Video of test of my $200 eBay asymmetrical spinnaker

I tried running the a-sail off a whisker pole on a 30 I had a few years back. Works great if the wind is low enough. I was on a long vacation run and bored so I played around. I had a slotted toe rail and used ratcheting straps to hold it to the rail. Used the angle of the boat to get the tack to windward. I think I got away with about 3 to 4 foot of extension until the wind came up. Then just collapsed the pole down to 2 foot the rest of the run. The pole will flex a bunch to give you some warning its time to pull it in. This was below a beam reach.

Re: Video of test of my $200 eBay asymmetrical spinnaker

Well spent. If you're not racing fairly seriously, used foresails are the only way to go IMHO - I've had some GREAT deals on them.

Like cars, I let the other guy eat the depreciation $$.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Video of test of my $200 eBay asymmetrical spinnaker

Very nice find! great videos I have found similar deals on sails on Craigslist....bought a drifter for $250 and a new Asy Spinnaker for $500. Those light air sails sure move the boat along....

Re: Video of test of my $200 eBay asymmetrical spinnaker

I was disappointed to find that Steely Dan had been replaced by Wham in that last video.
