I would like to add an asym cruising spinnaker
to my Hunter
38 for sailing down the Pacific Coast and cruising in the Sea of Cortez
I have my eye on a couple of used sails
that look appropriate but am not sure of the overall length needed. If I were buying
new I'd just let the sailmaker
figure it out.
The boat is a fractional rig with an "I" dimension of 46'8". The spinnaker halyard
is ~1' above the forestay/jib.
Since the foot of a spinnaker will fly above the pulpit that seems to indicate a shorter length, but the "belly" of the sail when flying indicates some additional lenth.
Need some voices of experience here...
