Hi Forum Members,
I'm hoping that one of you may be able to provide a practical solution to my problem. I have catamaran
(Maxim 380) which has a removable prodder (bowsprit) to which the tack of the screecher is attached. The prodder is held down by two lines (one to each bow), and held up by the screecher halyard
I would love to fly an asymetrical spinnaker
, but the technical information I have says to attach the spinnaker
tack to a tackline which runs through a block and to a convenient cleat. This allows the spinnaker to be floated a few feet above the deck
. However, this means I cannot use the spinnaker halyard
to hold the prodder up and steady.
Any practical ideas would be much appreciated.
