Spinnaker pole set up??????
« on: April 25, 2010, 22:30:58 PM »
Hi there, can someone please email me some pictures of there spin pole setup with a kite up, I have never rigged a mini before and cant seem to get the pole to pull out straight from the side of the boat, also is there supposed to be a small line from the pullpit to the pole to assist it in staying out of the water?? Anything would be of great help asap.
may thanks

Adam,
yes small line to keep pole up helps.
IF you make this one with a schokcord loop (5 times or so looped at 15 cm long) and make this tight on pole and stanchion, it helps to eject the pole. ( at least in my experience)
Otherwhise sometimes you need a little push to start rotating the pole, or tug on a little line on the back of the pole.

 As you see, welcome to proto world, i am not sure how it works on your boat.
Photo would help.
