Hi guys.
A lot of you ask about hooter/reacher, spinaker or genaker for wave. I decide to do a reacher (hooter) in my wave and want to share some photos and later video for you because on web is not too much information. I saw Rick project but just few pics.
My reacher is 9,5m2 (102 ft2).

[edit new photos]

Awesome. Thanks for sharing.
I did notice that with this configuration you can't use the jib. Does this sail allow you to use it close to the wind?
I've got the spinnaker setup for mine and have only used it once and that quickly led to a pitch pole. Maybe because the crew was up at the front beam.

I can use the jib also. I can't use cleats (becasue there are for jib). In that time I didn't take the jib becasue of small wind but I can i will try also.

Yes nice video:) I think that crew should go far away to back with spin! Look at my videos when I was sailing with my brother on trapeze (link in signature) - sometimes he goes far away back becasue the hull was start to dive.

Thanks for share video and your experience!
