       I too would like to add a spinnaker crane to the top of my C-26 mast. Does anyone know where I can purchase one that fits? Catalina Direct sells the entire Mast Head (including) the crane for approximately $200.  I only the Crane attachment. (A $5.00 part ----- O.K. $35.00 because it fits on a boat.).

      I've attached a picture from the boat's 2012 survey. The spinnaker halyard is the bluish-green one. The red line is the jib halyard (which is not used in conjunction with the CDI furler in the photo).

      How did you attach the block to the top of the mast.  My jib stay attaches right to the frnt of the mast head

      #248 is rigged like Bruce's, there is a block for the spinnaker halyard attached to the front of the masthead fitting, the second sheave in the masthead isn't used.

      I have  block attached to the top of the mast that works well, it takes the halyard a Couple inches in front of the furler, so I get no interferrence

      Has anyone tried tried to add a mast crane to fly an asymmetrical spinnaker.  When I fly my chute now from one of the two mast head halyards it wraps the furler whenever I jibe.  It seems that if I could get the head out away from the furler by putting a block on the end of a masthead mounted crane  it would fly better.  Any thoughts
