Gavin Kerr 31' Yacht - Selecting Spinnaker ?

Does anyone know how to get in contact with Gavin Kerr? My partner has a 31 foot yacht built and designed by him. Its fractionally rigged and I just want some numbers on the rigging so I can select a correctly sized second hand spinnaker for it. Or what other steps can I take in finding a suitable size range for a used spinnaker?

I'm sure I could just contract a sail maker but that sort of defeats the purpose of looking for a cheap used spinnaker.

Thanks. Dennis.

Dennis,
Maybe you could measure the rigging directly on the yacht.

I'm afraid that a cheap used spinnaker will not last long. It might be wasted money. And a good second-hand spinnaker might cost some money.

Cheers. When I say cheap I mean compared to new. I have seen a few advertised on here for around $600 claiming almost new condition.
