Asymmetrical Spinnaker with Pole

Practically Brand New.

I believe the previous owner purchased it in 2000 and used it only a few times. We have not used it but it is in great shape. No holes or patches and good stiching.

Sail dimensions: 38'5'' x 44'3'' x 27'7''
Pole is 15'4''

It is for a 1985 Seidelmann 37
Our mast is 49'6''

Includes bag.

See attached pictures.

That's a lovely sail Joey-- Don't sell it. You won't get what it's worth and you'll be glad you have it when you get south.

FWIW...

Thanks, but we don't know how to use it. We are still learning the first two sails. And can use the money. If we don't think we are getting enough for it then I guess we will have to learn one day.

I agree - KEEP IT

You will EVENTUALLY love that sail. It took me 12 months to grow the balls to haul up the assymetrical on the first boat I owned that came with one.

Despite the Admiral's protestations, on a 10 kt (apparent) downwind sail, I hauled her up the mast (the sail, not the Admiral) and played with her for half an hour. As I slowly gained confidence, that sail became very useful for downwind sailing. I can't say that you won't have some scarey moments but practice & you will eventually relax. The Admiral never did relax when that beauty was flying but that was her problem.

If you do sell it, you will regret it when your mainsail is flopping around going downwind and those other boats are floating by you with their assymetricals hauling arse.

svstrider has it right. dont sell your asymmetrical. downwind in light air is frustrating if you dont have the correct sail(s). if you use it you will grow to love it. IMHO

Joey--

Here's a reference for you: Asymmetrical Spinnaker . It would help if you had a sock but you can do without. I did for years and I "ain't no sailin wizzard".

FWIW...

I can't believe it...I just purchased a used one slightly smaller, 1999 sail for $1200.00, and I thought I got a good deal. DO NOT sell the sail!! If you do, you can get a good $$ for it. Sure wish I had seen this last week. My sail has already arrived!~~ Good luck, and keep the sail!!

Thanks for all the words of advice but remains for sale for the right price.

It does not have a sock.

After doing alot of research on the prices of equivilant sails I am looking for $2000. That price includes the spinnaker pole.

I'm sorry maybe it does. We have a chute scoop. I'm guessing that is what you meant by sock.
