Pole it is then... From what I read, it should be <= J length, so for me ~11ft. I'll look around Craigslist or source a few parts
I'm aware that you need to be carefull about broaching, so I'll only use in light air - all I want to do is beat the river current
speed on light air days and on an almst dead run. Also, someone told me that you should not put a figure of 8 knot
at the end of a spinnaker sheet.
