Hi Dave, curious why you mounted the poles to the tack rather than the mast like traditional spinnaker/whisker poles. Your Privilege has the advantage of a nose, not sure how that would work with the normal cross beam and gull striker, don't imagine there would be huge longitudinal load on the poles, but enough.
