What color spinnaker do you have or would you want? Ours is a solid yellow asymetrical with a single horizontal white stripe in the middle, and a couple of white stripes in an inverted "V" shape in the bottom half.

Anyone with anything particularly interesting? An applique? Cool colors? Post a picture of your chute.

I have a old one on my boat that has a pie like shape on it. Each slice of the pie is a different color, blue, yellow, red, green and so on. If I was buying a new one, I would like a solid red one.

On our last race boat, a speedy 24 foot dayracer named "Jalapeno", we had a green and white chute made (seen in the shot below)



The intent was to have this logo below applied to the large area that we left white. In the end it proved too costly (nearly doubled the cost) so unfortunately it never got done. (btw the C&C 29 on the right is named "Killer Bee"!)



In another previous boat, named "Ragtime", we had a chute made with the horizontal panels in the pattern of piano keys.. looked neat but I don't have any digital pics.

Pic below is our current boat's kite, taken on a typical spring day in Howe Sound:

Mine is all white. It's nice and clean looking (read cheap).

I'm thinking of having forest green colored stars forming the constellation Orion put on it. I have a thousand other things to spend money on first though.

Ours is red, white and... blue.

My Dad's boat had a big golden one with a green kangaroo under a palm tree on it - just to make sure all the American yachts in the Transpac that year knew where we came from!
