Hi All,

When I got my 20 it came with a tramp launched spinnaker and everything to use it except the spinnaker pole. My friend is going to give me a sailboard mast to make a spin pole but I don't know where to go from there. Does anyone have measurements of one they can give me? Where can I find the parts necessary to build this thing?

For the short term I will probably just keep the spin tramp launched but sooner or later I will want to build a snuffer if I keep using it. I am planning on sailing the Delta Ditch so a tramp launch would be fine.

Pictures anyone?

Here are pictures from the conversion Tim Parson did with
Mark Lewis and Steve Reese using the SNU snuffer - The link to the PDF is here:
