Does anyone have handy the distance from the top to the tang to be installed for the spin package? I'm curious as I'm planning on fitting my Getaway with a symmetric spin, but want to put the mast tang in the right place in case I decide to add the sprit.
Unless it is blowing 25+ you won't ever sail low and slow enough to use a symmetrical sail. Symmetric sails do not perform well on fast light boats.
There is a thread on installing the spinnaker kit on a Getaway: http://www.hobiecat.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=42068
The dimension you are looking for is there.
