barber hauler question

can anybody describe or have a picture of how the barber hauler is used to move the jib lead outboard? do you have to have the lead out of the track on a short line?

A barber-hauler is usually a block with a tail on it. The jibsheet goes through the block before going through its usual jib lead. The tail gets led to a rail or other strong outboard point like an eye, (perhaps through another block and to a winch) and then to a cleat, so it can be adjusted. It's usually easier to adjust the barber-hauler before trimming the sheet but on some headings, some systems have enough muscle to do it after.

It may even have a block and tackle on the end of the block, rather than just a tail.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Is this what you want?

I use a spinnaker guy with a snap shackle.

jib trim

Just as a suggestion, I would think you would use barber haulers on a headsail when off the breeze. An old friend at my local yacht club sometimes uses his spinnaker pole set to leeward to good effect. I've not tried it myself but he is a pretty clever yachtie(he was on Southern Cross in the '74 Americas Cup). He uses this if to tight for a spinnaker or if short handed. All it would take to give it a try is a spinnaker pole and a snoter ring to clip it to. Might be worth a try. Let me know what you think/results if you try.

Of course, barberhaulers make a lot more sense on a multihull, where you really have the beam to make good use of them... going downwind...

I assume that the spin is mounted athwartships.

When to use

That makes sense. It opens up the slot between the main and jib, allowing more air to go through without backwinding the main. You might also want to use them upwind in heavier air, if the main is getting too much backwind and you don't have a smaller jib to switch to right away. Some new boats are being set up without any tracks for jib leads. They use sets of barber-haulers attached to padeyes in the deck to place the clew of the sail wherever they want it - in/out/forward and/or back. It's lighter than a track with cars (and adjusting lines) and probably less expensive too.

Spinnaker pole is set up as if you were "goose winging" then gybed the main only. Then head up to fill jib/genoa and onto your course. I'm not sure how high you would be able to carry this into the breeze but he swears by it(calls it his turbo-charger). I am guessing but I think height would be dependant on fullness of sail and length of pole.
