So, I bought a H16 today for $500 mainly because it had a spinnaker sail. None of the sails are H16 sails however and I'm trying to ID them. Here are the dimensions. Anyone got any ideas?

Spinnaker: Neil Pryde, bag says its .75 oz Nylon
Foot = 12'
Luff = 26'
Leech = 21.5'

Ok, since I am clueless about the origin of the spinnaker, the more important question is: Will it work on my H16?

The mast is 26', so a 26' luff is a bit too big. The stock 16 spinnaker has a luff of 21.5'

Thanks for the help.

So, I guess this spinnaker would be more suited to a H17 or H18, huh? What are the measurements for spinnakers for those boats?

I don't have a spec for the 17.

The H18 uses a 25.3' Luff

$100 seems a little cheap. It looks like it has never been used. I'll take some pictures tonight and post them. How much would a new H18 spinnaker cost?

I put an ad in the classifieds section.
