Here is a link to the factory rigging diagram that might be helpful. I posted up on Bob Dugan's PSC Owner's Forum:

The purpose of the spinnaker crane / bails is to get the hallyard free of the head sail.

If you take the hallyard out at he top sheave and through a block at the crane you would get a bad lead - giving chafe on the hallyard.

Then it's better to let the hole spinnaker hallyard run outside the mast

Re: Halyard for Asymmetrical Spinnaker on PSC 37

Thanks! Yes, that makes sense and is what we will do. We will keep the spare internal halyard for other tasks. The other option of creating an exit for the internal halyard made sense once I figured out that the opening would face upward

This sounds like a stupid question but we are newcomers to this wonderful sport.
Ex:
Our Asail halyard ran up/down totally outside the mast. The mast head sheaves did not come into play with the assail halyard at all. Does that make sense?

If you have internal hallyards you should have (or make) an opening in front of the mast aproximatly 1m (3 feet down the mast).

So the hallyard go into the mast at (or near) the bottom of the mast, inside the mast, exiting the mast at the opening close to the top, through the block at the top down to the deck (this end attaches to the sail)

Picture is better

LeFiell is in California, here is their link.

JohnRPollard Yeah, the mast-head spinnaker bail is what you want. It will get the spin halyard further forward of the main mast section and help to prevent entanglement. Especially if you plan to use a chutescoop/sock, which are bulky and need some space up the top.

Our boat has LeFiell's single bail version, which works great. But our masthead headstay toggle is tucked in close to the masthead assembly. It looks like the headstay toggle on the 37 protrudes quite a bit further, necessitating the split bail seen on Talisman's masthead.

I wouldn't at all mind having that split bail with a spare spin halyard, or at least a messenger ready to go.

P.S. Arisatx, good thinking to take a photo of the masthead. That will come in handy...
