has anyone adapted a ruller fuller to the end of the spinaker pole on a hobie tiger if so how can it be done? Cause we just cruise the coast over here and we want to make it simpler to deploy the spinaker.

That would be a screecher. If you are trying to make it easier, try an endpole snuffer. That way you can keep the spinnaker that you have and take away the tack line. If you would make a furler on the front it would require a completely different cut for the sail. It would also add a lot of windage. There is not a problem deploying a chute if you go really deep as you do so.

Later,
Dan
