I agree. I am just changing to a drier easier sailboat to sail with 1 person but can accommodate 6.....It's too cold in Seattle.

Boat was sold to Todd from Bellingham. Thanks for the years of help understanding the CADILLAC of catamarans. Please welcome Todd into the family and keep him going with all your great advice.....

Keep sailing.

Thanks Steve, it was really nice to meet you :-)
Going through the rigging and trying to order the little bits and bobs I need for the spring.

Hi Steve,
I'm pretty sure I figured out why you were having so much trouble with your spinnaker. It is NOT symmetrical, laying it out on the lawn made that clear from the start. Last time out, I had a new (to this boat) crew. He tied the green side of the spin to the tack. The sail reacted exactly as you describe. We hauled the sail in and retied tack to red, back out and viola all better. I'm really bummed that you didn't have a good experience with the spinnaker, it is truly a blast!

Hey Todd,

Please post some photos of your spinnaker setup, pole and rigging. Thanks!

I am thinking of adding a top furling setup and ordering a new spinnaker...any ideas?

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.
