Spinnaker for sale

Postby Pete Cooper » Sat Feb 06, 2016 6:06 pm

I have a symmetrical spinnaker that I no longer need - the label says it was made by Butler Verner of Gosport. The luffs measure 1080 cm and the foot is 645cm.
It is in decent condition - as I have taken it out and measured it I see one area with some black marking and will run it through the washing machine - I think that will sort it. It is 2 shades of blue and white.
I used it on my 26ft boat but it was slightly too big for that really.
Must be worth £100 to somebody?

I would be interested. Currently I occasionally use an asymmetric cruising chute, but it's too long in the luff for close wind use (the planned bowsprit never happened) and gybing it is a real pain - I would quite like to go back to a symmetrical. The Etap handbook says that the spinnaker for the E30 is 55.1m², and if I've done the sums correctly yours is around 34m², but I'd be happy with one a bit smaller since I mainly single hand, and a bit of safety margin would be no bad thing - obviously for bragging purposes I would refer to it as the storm spinnaker...

Of course Aquaplane - you could buy it as a wedding present for Lady_stormrider.
