If you're buying a whisker pole it certainly makes sense to get one that you can extend to a useable length for cruising, but you'll have to mark it for racing, so its visible if its extended beyond "J".

|setmefree||You can also search craigs list. The simplist way is to go to Google. Then in the search put "whisker pole site:craigslist.org". This will check all cities in craigs list.|

I have not advertised it yet and have not given it much thought. I think I'd be happy if I can get in the range of $450 plus shipping costs. That would cover the cost of me buying the smaller version.
Thanks for the quick reply.

Thank you for getting back to me I actually am interested. I was looking for a 12-20, but may be consider a smaller version. What are you looking to get for it?

Whisker pole available
I have one that came with my used Hunter 27. It is too big for the H27 but would probably work well on your boat.
Contact me if you are interested in discussing it. (Forespar 10-18 telescoping).

Quickstep 192 what was your search criteria on EBay, was it simply whisker pole.
Thank you both for responding. I am not tied to any one design rules.
I will try Bacon in Annapolis too.
I am on LI sound, CT shore.

|PalmettoSailor||If you are racing PHRF, I think you are limited to your "J" dimension anyway so telescoping is probably not a requirement.|

|Quickstep192||I found mine on eBay. I had to check regularly for about a month, but one finally turned up. Don't know where you are, but Bacon in Annapolis is another likely source.|

ANybody know where you can find a telescoping whisker pole for less than a fortune. I have a C&C 34 and I am getting killed on the downwind legs of the Wednesday night club racing.
