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!

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

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 $$.

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....

I was disappointed to find that Steely Dan had been replaced by Wham in that last video.
