Hi all

I have a spinnaker buried in a locker, but no pole and the only provision fitted is a halyard pulley at the top of the mast.

What set up do you all have on your boats?

Cheers!

In addition to a pole I have the following all of which are lead back to the cockpit with jammers apart from the sheets which are lead to blocks on the toerail on the quarters and then to the sheet winches:

External halyard
Tack down haul for cruising chute
2 sheets
2 preventers/barber haulers
pole uphaul
pole downhaul

The spinnaker and cruising chute are launched from and recovered to a large cuboid bag which is clipped into the companionway.  All lines are long enough to lead into this bag without unclipping.

I can launch trim and recover the spinnaker and chute single handed as long as the autohelm can manage the conditions and steer the boat.

Thanks Justin and as I suspected

Have most of that to hand except a pole

Where do you run your pole downhaul to? The base of the mast or a deck fitting?

Cheers

Because I have a babystay just behind the forehatch the downhaul is attached there so the pole can hinge without adjusting the downhaul as the guy and sheet are eased etc...
