Video of test of my $200 eBay asymmetrical spinnaker
 
Video of test sail of my $200 eBay asymmetrical spinnaker yesterday, set to goofy cover of Steely Dan's "Reelin' in the Years" by The Classics:
I probably should have trimmed the tack line more...:)

Nice pick up! The closer you sail to the wind, the more luff tension you need, so yes, tack line could have been trimmed more.

BTW, another used main? With a C&C logo?

I think you got a deal there...oh, and the music won't even classify as goofy...step away from the casio;)

Yes, another eBay purchase - used it almost all of last season. It has a good shape and seems pretty rugged.

I love Steely Dan and the original version of that song - just can't find it on YouTube from its pre-selected audio files to add.

And another one, set to The Classics's rendition of Steely Dan's "Aja" (perhaps the greatest song from the greatest album ever):

$200 for an Asym - nice !

The sail looks in really good shape. Evidently it was lightly used.

It's cut nicer than the asym that came with my boat (which I sold for $200).

You might try putting a hank on the tack of the sail to keep it at the boat's centerline. That should help you use it over a wider wind range.

Nice score on a nice looking sail. The only criticism I have is the video is missing the pan to the knotmeter showing how fast you are going as a result of your new purchase.
