Though my mast is rigged for a spinnaker pole (topping lift, track & loop), I don't have a pole. However, my boat came with an almost brand new spinnaker and the thing keeps tempting me to use it. Tacking it to the bow seems like an easy way to use it. In fact, after reading the first reply and most of the second, I was feeling good about my idea until you said the dreaded "B" word (broach!). Hmmm. Any other opinions/ideas?

John - The Tacker looks intriguing, but my boat does not have a furling headsail. I wonder if the Tacker will work on a bare headstay wire. Or perhaps I could make something that functions like the Tacker, but fits on a bare wire. Seems doable with some shackles, etc.
