BCboy Sadly, my Pearson 33 does not have a spinnaker halyard so I'm out of luck, but you should head over to the UK Halsey wesite and look at their video. They call their assymetric a "Flasher"
Definitely the dousing sock is the way to go.
No need for a sprit.

jimrafford I run the tack line down thru a bow roller for the anchor and back to a bow cleat. A friend of mine has a setup similar to what you are talking about and it works too. I used to use our old symetrical chute the same way. Jibing is a piece of cake. If you really want to take the stress out of using a chute invest in a sock. Makes hoisting and shuting the chute down a cinch.

Assymetric for a Pearson 10M

Have a Pearson 10M and want to understand how easy it is to hook up an asymmetric kite. My boat has a traditional spinnaker set up, but I do not use since the pole is heavy and my wife isn't keen on trying it becasue she has seen the "broach" videos and is absolutely 100% against try to fly it.

I think I could get her to sail a Asymmetric.

The Pearson 10M does not have a bow sprit and I am not keen on installing one. It has a heavy duty one piece bow pulpit that extends far away from the actual bow that may make installing a device for the sail tack, challenging.

Can I use a heavy duty block for the tack line and secure it to the forestay deck mount with either a shackle or d-ring? Any other approaches?

Thanks.

DrB
