I'm new to the forum, so New Year's Greetings to you all.
I am about to install the deck hardware
for a spinaker on my 440 and would welcome input from the experienced here on the forum. Specifically, I am keen to have recomendations as to the block size/load, for both the "stand up" blocks on the bows as well as those either side at the stern assuming spi size of 130-150 m2.
I guess at a minimum, it is two "stand up" blocks and two std blocks, but perhaps another two at the amidships cleat.
I am also interested to know how one manages the guys and sheets
at the jibe, bearing in mind the presence of just the std. 2 X outboard
(genoa)winches and no capacity to jam or clutch
off either a lazy line or a load bearing sheet/guy on transition (load to lazy, lazy to load).
Thanks in advance for any help offered.
