I finnally put together my new spinaker and I have a question. Three different lines One that is blue and is shorter no problem I know where that one went. But now I have a white one and a black one. Which line takes the sail up the mast? I am using the black line but I seems to be short by a few feet. Should I use the white line instead?
As my own Spinnaker kit is about to arrive very shortly, the questions about the lines can probably be best answered by Matt Miller, Parts Manager for Hobie Inc.
(Even though, Mr Miller is an admin person on these forums, you will need to send him a PM to get a response), or call Hobie Support directly with a message asking for support.
I have also downloaded and read the instructions for the Spinnaker Hardware Kit install. In truth, friend, Hobie has made their instructions sheets quite vague simply to have you go back to your dealer to give them extra business of a simple install that should be a DIY.
You may also notice that there is no YouTube Vids to install their options.
Ok, look at the instructions. They offer no measurements but show where the lines need to go. So first, you need to measure out what they intend. (Hint, after installing a Genny on a Catalina 27 that I owned years ago, the longest thinest line will be your sheet lines). There is an odd outhaul system on the head of the pole of the Wave, that should be the shortest if the drawings are to scale.
If you can wait a week or so, I will have the parts that I need to do exactly what I am probably going to end up with just like you.
I'll let you know in more detail when I get there.
*Edited: I have been informed by Matt Miller that my info is out of date thus not relevant.
