Jury rigged Jib Boom

Last night I rigged up a temporary jib boom using my spinnaker pole and a few extra blocks and shackles. Surprisingly, it worked pretty well - let me tack without messing with the jib and gave a decent sail shape - no worse than usual with a partially furled genoa. Best part is I can rig it up or take it down very quickly and get my foredeck and normal roller furling jib set up back. I'm sure this has been done many times, but I haven't seen it described so thought I'd share.

Re: Jury rigged Jib Boom

Cool. I've thought my spinnaker pole which is huge might work if I ever needed an emergency boom.
