Sorry Sailingdog, wrong on both counts. Freedom actually did make models with jibs. They used something they called a Camberspar, which was a stiff batten perpendicular to the luff, to help with luff tension and self-tacking convienence. While the jibs were tiny, they still were jibs making these boats sloops. While the 'Gunmount' referred to the method of attaching the spin pole to the bow pulpit, most of the boat that had Gunmount spinackers also had a retractor for the chute that included a downhaul that pulled the chute through the bow pulpit and into a long bag. They did not have an "uphaul" but they did have a spin halyard.

Are you east or west coast?

Sorry I misunderstood and didn't realise that you OWN the boat.

Give Gary Hoyt a call at Alerion Yachts.

He can certainly direct you to some instructions for the "Gun Mount"
