making & installing an asymetrical sprit

assymetric.

This year I moved to an assymetric spinnaker as I generally sail short-handed. The sail is 500sq foot cf. the spinnaker at 650 sq foot. I used a 3" dia spinnaker pole, mounted through a 4" dia s/s hoop, which is bolted to the tangs of the jib furling gear(plastimo 608S) the rear of the pole is clipped by the standard end fitting to a U-bolt on the foredeck offset so that the fore end of the pole is on the centreline when the pole is in position 5''6" ahead of the forestay. I did not fit any gear to pull the pole forward, but rigged it by hand.

The sail could be hoisted, set and sailed and dropped single-handed all from the cockpit.

The boat is a 25''6" Hustler 25.5 used for cruising and regattas in the English Channel
I think that I have photos on cd I you would like to see them.

making & installing an asymetrical sprit

Well I have seen one made by Elan for the Elan 40, is made with stainsteel (excuse my spelling), when its set goes out about 85 cm, an in gets stock on the "anchor closet". I think I have some pictures if you´re interested I will email you. I am also thinking on placing it....and use the asymetrical chute from UK the so called the "flasher"....any opinions ?

making & installing an asymetrical sprit

I have been working on one for my O''Day 30.
at present I have installed a fitting ahead of my head stay to tack in front of headstay. At present there doesn''t seem to be much info around on the subject. I have found that on the new Dehler 36 they have a removable carbon fiber pole which is slide through a ring attached to the bow stem and then attached to a spin pole type chock on the deck. a friend of mine has one and I plan to check it out further this even after our thurs night racing. I have found some info on the mini-transat site. these are very extreme poles but some modifications to these systems I think might work. this weekend I plan to run some comparisions with and without sprit as to speed differances. I''ll let you know what I''ve found.
