Awesome, congrats.
Where do you recommend running sheet blocks?
Pole length? Snuf mid-or end or on the tramp?
Sail size, where' dyou get it ?

I'm going to rig an F17 spin as a winter project....

Looks very nice, I would like to rig a spin on my 18 some day. No $ or effort at this time, just a dream.

I'm running the sheet blocks off the shrouds and the second pair on the forward crossbar. All are harken 57mm ratchamatics
Pole is 12' 2", the tack is at 12', the 2" just gives me room to mount a telocat.
I made the pole, its just some 1.5" 120 wall I picked up for $35 at the local steel supply yard.
The snuffer is a tiger mid pole.
Sail is a Whirlwind
