I have seen some discussion previously about the performance increases from using a reacher in place of the stock H17 jib. Can anyone give me any infomation, dimensions etc or an idea of where I can get a reacher for my H17.
I was thinking about adding an asymetric spinnaker but think that since I have the jib kit and furler already fitted a reacher would be the better option.

Any help appreciated

It is an idea I've also been toying with. Initially I was looking into a Hooter, but decided I didn't want to put the added stress on the comptip. By using the Jib furler and a second sheet rail system located along the hulls (similar to the H18) and a zippered luff screacher, it would be easy to switch from the standard jib and a screacher. I’m interested in knowing what you find out.
