Hi Bill, any particular parts of the spin setup you want me to focus on?
A furling spin or code zero would be ideal if you sail alone often or in light wind.
My setup is not easy to recover when I'm solo. It really helps to have two hands when dropping the chute.
I'm using the original spin, it is HUGE! It goes from the end of the pole to a foot short of the back of the wing.
It is pretty easy to cover the spinnaker with the main to de-power it, or for take down and launch.
Almost doubling your sail area adds just a bit of power and speed
Eventually I will replace it with a more modern cut reaching sail.
As to the setup, it is dead simple, and doing it with a roller would be even easier. A bit of 1 1/2 to 2" aluminum (I bought 20' for $50 locally) Some low stretch line or cable and a strap to connect the pole to the hulls, and for me, a block at either end for lines.
I'll post some pictures tonight or tomorrow.
How do you fasten your Jib halyard? What do you tie it to? I have a new jib, and I'm having trouble with it getting slack wrinkles, I can't seem to keep it tight.
