Using the spin ring for whisker poles.

what are everyone's thoughts on the topic? I'm just lazy and reluctant to drill holes in my mast. What do you all do and why?

I f what you mean by your question is the use of the rings in the mast where the spi pole attaches, I do it...

I have 3 rings instead of the track as per Sparcraft's advice. At 3 different heights. For gybing with 2 poles etc.

I've got a track, been thinking of just adding two more cars to it so I don't have to move the track around. hahah. (can you tell all my sailing ideas center around lazyness?)

Ahhh... and the track has no ring right?

If that is it, there is (I need time to search it) a removable car with a ring..I just need to find it..harken or Lewmar...can't promise I find it. I saw it in a Hanse, or a Dehler. Not sure.

no, got a track with one ring car on it already. I'm just thinking instead of moving it around to just get 2 more cars.

Yes, extra weight, but hey, I'm more interested in ease of single handing and the cars are removable if I decide to, unlike fixed rings. Not having to move the ring is one less step on the foredeck, and a few less seconds away from the tiller.

well, my question was really more if there was any reason to not use the spin ring for the whisker pole. The fixed ring that came with the wisker pole I use for light air is a good deal smaller in diameter, I'm wondering about binding.
