Does anyone have any experience/advice with Asymetrical Spinnakers on the J28?
I am considering ordering one, but and wondering about mounting fittings for the Tack Line. (specifically STRENGTH and simplicity).
I have seen some of the pictures on the site, using the Anchor roller. Does this need to be reinforced to handle the load of the sail? The roller looks pretty solid stainless channel and I believe the headstay is also attached here, so I am assuming its strong enough.
I just looked at a boat yesterday along with a much more experienced sailor than myself. He thought the anchor roller assembly would bend or deflect, especially on close reaches.
I plan on doing most of my sailing single handed (and on Long Island Sound -land of no wind)so In light air I would like to use the assym as close to the wind as possible and carry it in breeze off the wind.
I have gained a ton of knowledge from this group as I make the transition from dinghy racer to larger boats. Thank you to all in advance.
Are there anyother 28s on LIS? I will be in Black Rock for the next several years, then hopefully back up near Salem Ma on Ma Bay.
You are welcome to respond thru the group or directly to my email sailingmaster@...
Thanks and Happy new year
