Has anyone rigged a spinnaker on their 16?

More sail area=faster sailing...I know that Hobie and Murrays both sell kits for setting it up - but I've never heard of anyone actually doing it...

Anyone?

I have sailed the 16 with a chute. I like sailing spinnakers and it works well on th 16. MORE POWER SCOTTY!

That's so cool - they're asymetrical, so they don't require a pole, right? You just fly them like a big jib off the end of the lauch pole?

Does the 16 have a snuffer to put 'em up and take 'em down?
